Rossini | Petite messe solennelle (Little solemn mass) 

Rossini’s Petite messe solennelle is a musical curiosity, and written 30 years after his retirement from writing operas. 

The sacred text of the Missa solemnis is set to music which is sometimes delicate, often witty, and frequently over-the-top…  while poking fun at Rossini’s own (and other composers’) musical styles. 

In this salon-style performance we present Rossini’s original and rarely heard version for two pianos, harmonium/piano accordion, and 11 singers. Spoiler alert: Sadly we can’t meet Rossini’s direction of 12 singers of three sexes: men, women and castrati). 

If you love a melody and sparkling music, the Callaway Music Auditorium on Sunday 26 August at 3pm is the place you need to be!
