Sunday 13 May 2018 – 7.30pm
Petite Messe Solennelle
After a career of composing operas, (39 in 19 years to be precise), culminating in the famous William Tell, Rossini’s musical output suddenly ceased. When at last he was persuaded to compose again, he returned to his first love of sacred music and produced this gem of the choral repertoire. The Petite Messe Solennelle is scored for piano, harmonium and chorus with a quartet of soloists.
Also returning are our soloists: Helen Groves, soprano; Susanna Spicer, mezzo-soprano; Andrew Mackenzie Wicks, tenor and Benjamin Bevan, bass.
