On the page it says :unison next to mp what is that speffically called

The mp is an abbreviation for mezzo piano, and unison refers to the text being sung in unison. It is not sung in parts, such as soprano tenor alto bass etc. All voices sing the same melody.

Just to add to that, mp or mezzo-piano, means play the piece at a moderately soft volume but not quite as soft as piano.
