Formby Choral Society Autumn Concert
7.30pm 18 November Our Lady of Compassion Church Formby
Haydn - Nelson Mass
Zelenka - Missa Beat Purificationes
An exciting concert - one huge favourite, and one completely unknown!
The Nelson Mass is generally considered to Haydn's greatest choral composition. We will be performing it in the original scoring of trumpets, timpani, organ and strings. Although Haydn subsequently added other wind parts to it, under pressure from a publisher, this scoring is beautiful and exciting.
The Zelenka work has only been performed once before in the UK, and we had to purchase the right to use the scores produced for the Czech choir who have made the only recording. It is a fabulous work!
