Summer Concert 2018
Christ Church, Totland PO39 0ES
Saturday 9th June 2018, 7.00pm note start time
Mozart – Mass in C Minor K427
Poulenc – Gloria
Mozart’s Great Mass in C minor was the composer’s last setting of the Mass (apart from his Requiem, which was unfinished at the time of his death.) The large-scale work, a missa solemnis, is scored for two soprano soloists, a tenor and a bass, double chorus and large orchestra. It remained unfinished, missing large portions of the Credo and the complete Agnus Dei.
As Philip Fryer is unable to conduct this evening’s concert for pesonal reasons, we are delighted to welcome Jonathan Willcocks who has kindly ageed to step in at short notice.
Our soloists this evening are: Jessica Loeb Soprano, Miranda Johnson Soprano , Sammir Savant Tenor and Martin Johnson Bass.
Tonight’s performance will be accompanied on the organ, played by Peter King, Organist Emeritus of Bath Abbey.
Following the cancellation of our Spring Concert because of bad weather, we are delighted to include also a performance of Poulenc’s Gloria, which was scheduled for that performance. We are fortunate that the soprano soloist for the original performance, Susanna MacRae, will be joining us for this occasion.
