Mozart Mass in C Minor - K427

Although unfinished, this majestic work is the grandest of Mozart’s settings of the Mass, with a latent theatricality that makes it a riveting experience for choir and soloists alike. Calne Choral will be singing the major double choruses from this large and exciting work.

Summer Concert 2013

Saturday 6th July 2013 at 7.30pm - St Mary's School, Curzon Street, Calne

A varied summer programme of choral music including:

Petite Messe Solennelle - Gioachino Rossini

A mass for chorus and 4 solo voices with piano and harmonium, written in 1864.
Rossini is best known for his comic opera, including 'The Barber of Seville' and 'Otello'. However, late in his life after a thirty year break from composing, he created a series of delightful salon pieces that he called 'Péchés de vieillesse' - 'Sins of Old Age' and two sacred works. Composed with characteristic wit and refinement, he referred to his final work 'La Petite Messe Solenelle' as his 'last mortal sin'!

Faire Is the Heaven - Sir William H. Harris
A 20th century motet for double choir.

Words by Edmund Spenser, from "An Hymne of Heavenly Beautie", 1596.
