Concert Beethoven Mass In C

Two, thrilling choral classics – one old, one new – are coming to Worcester Cathedral on Saturday 16 March 2024, performed by the 140 voices of Worcester Festival Choral Society.

Beethoven composed his radiant Mass in C major to convey the text and sentiments of the Mass in new ways, creating a humble, glorious contemplation of the divine.

The concert also includes Richard Blackford’s breathtakingly beautiful 1996 cantata, Mirror of Perfection, expressively set to poems by St Francis of Assisi.

Performed with four outstanding soloists and accompanied by the superb Meridian Sinfonia orchestra, the performance will be conducted by Worcester Cathedral’s director of music, Samuel Hudson.

Soloists:

SUSANNA FAIRBAIRN – soprano

SAMANTHA PRICE – mezzo-soprano

GWILYM BOWEN – tenor

DOMINIC SEDGWICK – baritone
