Mozart Great Mass in C Minor

25 June 2016

 

The Edinburgh Singers' first orchestral concert since Alistair Digges joined as Musical Director was a rare opportunity to see a performance of one of Mozart's sublime works for chorus and orchestra, the stunning Great Mass in C minor.

The choir was joined by some exceptional solo talent, including BBCSSO principal trumpet Mark O'Keeffe, as well as Catriona Clark and Megan Read (Soprano), Jamie MacDougall (Tenor) and James Arthur (Bass).

The headlining Mass was supplemented by Mozart's ever-popular gem, Ave Verum Corpus, and the evening also featured music by Haydn, with his dramatic Te Deum in C, and a real treat as Mark O'Keeffe played the Trumpet Concerto in Eb.
