Rossini's Return

Petite Messe SolennelleSt John's Churchbutton--dates-and-timesDates & Times

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 soloists: Helen Groves, soprano; Susanna Spicer, mezzo-soprano; Andrew Mackenzie Wicks, tenor and Benjamin Bevan, bass.
