SPIRIT OF MALIA, THE (with Haas, Haugen, Joncas et al)
The small parish of Malia Puka O'Kalani (Hawaiian for Mary, Gate of
Heaven) has been a source of inspiration for many of our best composers
over the years. Several of GIA's top-selling titles found their genesis
at Malia and were first sung at this parish. This recording compiles much
of this music--a true tribute to the community. All royalties from the
sale of this recording will go directly to benefit Malia, to help the parish
and to encourage the work they have begun.
What makes Malia so special?
Malia Puka O'Kalani is a place where the traditions of Hawaii have been
able to sustain a distinct identity. Located in the small community of
Keaukaha on the edge of Hilo, on land set aside for native Hawaiians known
as the Hawaiian Homelands, Malia is a place where the rich culture and
traditions of Hawaii have been kept alive.
In 1972 the parish was on the verge of closing; however, thanks to Father
DeCosta and a small group of dedicated parishioners, Malia is now a bustling
parish serving the community in a myriad of ways.
One of the remarkable accomplishments of Malia has been the Big Island
Liturgy and Arts Conference. This conference has attracted many of today's
brightest and best known composers and artists, including those featured
on this marvelous recording.
