Rossini Petite messe solennelle - Worcester Chorus
March 7, 2014
An exciting performance that will offer the chance to hear The Worcester Chorus in this mass that sounds like an opera! This is vintage Rossini, full of wonderful melodies, and will feature the performance on the newly restored Hook organ of Mechanics Hall.
Gioachino Antonio Rossini was an Italian composer who wrote 39 operas as well as sacred music, chamber music, songs, and some instrumental and piano pieces. The Petite messe is part of a group of works that Rossini himself called "sins of my old age", and it was written only a few years before his death.
