Schubert Mass in E Flat Major

Schubert Mass in E Flat Major


Mendelssohn  Hear My Prayer, Violin concerto 
Schubert Mass in E flat major 

 
Our spring concert presents three masterpieces from two of the great composers of the early nineteenth century. Mendelssohn’s lyrical anthem for soprano soloist and choir, Hear My Prayer, first performed in London in 1845, which includes the celebrated ‘Oh for the Wings of a Dove’, is followed by his much-loved violin concerto, with its soaring solo lines and romantic melodies.  
Schubert’s Mass in E flat major, composed in 1828 during his final years, is an inspiring and imposing choral work written on a grand scale.  The influence of Beethoven is felt in its pronounced dynamic contrasts and generous use of brass and timpani. A truly uplifting evening of music!
