Haydn Nelson Mass
Mozart Vespers

Haydn’s Mass for Troubled Times was written in 1798 when Napoleon’s armies were threatening Vienna.  It was called The Nelson Mass after Nelson defeated the French Navy at the Battle of the Nile.  The moving and dramatic work sets the movements of the Latin Mass.

Mozart’s Solemn Vespers for a Confessor was composed in 1780 for liturgical use in Salzburg Cathedral.  It is a setting of five Psalms and the Magnificat and includes the glorious Laudate Dominum.

Tickets £5 to £40
