Os Mundi - Latin Mass

A fine piece of prog from the early 70s. German band recreates catholic mass as a psychedelic concept album; you could call it "The pope meets the dope". The lyrics are in latin (although Kyrie Eleison is greek, isn't it?), and the music is typical late-60s organ/fuzz mongering, but of the good kind. Some fragments are very reminiscent of the Doors' hypnotic jams (i.e. The End); online reviewers also call this album "krautrock" and compare it with Uriah Heep and Iron Butterfly.
