KIRCHENMUSIK of Mozart, Haydn, and Schubert featuring Mozart’s Solemn Vespers and Schubert’s Mass No. 2 in G
James Knox Sutterfield, Music Director
This program takes us on a tour of the Classical period, from Haydn’s earliest authenticated work, his Missa Brevis in F, to Schubert’s Mass No. 2 in G, the best known of his shorter Masses. While less renowned than the unfinished Requiem and the Mass in C Minor, Mozart’s Vespers are a tour de force of contrasting styles and daring writing for chorus, soloists, and orchestra.
