Mozart - Mass in C Minor
Mendelssohn - Psalm 95: Kommt Laßt uns anbeten
Haydn - Representation of Chaos
Beethoven - Leonora No.3
The unfinished Great Mass in C Minor was conceived on an epic scale. The piece shows Mozart at his most personal as he wote the mass to celebrate both his marriage to Constanze Weber and the birth of their first child. Influenced by J S Bach, this glorious work will move and thrill you in equal measure.
