Event ended

Editor's Choice

Cheltenham Choral Society is taking to St Mary's in Charlton Kings to welcome the arrival of spring with a concert of music featuring Haydn's Nelson Mass and Little Organ Mass.

Choral music connoisseurs will be celebrating the arrival of spring at St Mary’s in Charlton Kings, where the renowned Cheltenham Choral Society is set to deliver an enchanting performance with conductor Ian Higginson.

On Saturday 25 March 2017, the uplifting concert will present Franz Joseph Haydn’s 18th century compositions ‘Nelson Mass’ (Missa in Angustiis), and ‘Little Organ Mass’.

Audiences can also look forward to excerpts from the Musical Clock with organist Neil Fortin, which is sure to delight during the evening’s entertainment.

Dating back to 1778, Haydn’s ‘Nelson Mass’ is also known as ‘Missa in Angustiis’ meaning ‘mass in a time of tribulation’, with the piece composed during a time of war and political uncertainty. Haydn’s only minor key mass, set in D minor, the piece evokes drama and emotion, symphonic in style and using trumpets for a military feel.

Meanwhile, the ‘Little Organ Mass’ is Haydn’s final Missa Brevis, which was originally for violins and organ and on a much smaller scale than the Nelson Mass.

One of the county’s leading choral exports, Cheltenham Choral Society’s spring concert offers the perfect chance to catch the group in action and celebrate the new season in style.
