Rossini Petite Messe Solennelle & Skellern Weathers

June 20 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Book tickets now
Holy Trinity Sloane Square,
Sloane Street , London, SW1
+ Google Map

In this 150th anniversary year of his death, GCU presents Rossini’s final masterpiece, the Petite Messe Solennelle. Written for a quirky accompaniment of two pianos and harmonium, it is neither “small” in duration nor very “solemn”, but rather quite long and always operatically entertaining. In 1987, GCU sang the first performance of Weathers, a companion piece for the Rossini, specially written for the choir by the popular singer, pianist, composer and entertainer, Peter Skellern. Sadly, Peter died last year, and GCU dedicates this concert to him in loving memory

Haydn Te Deum, Mozart Vespers K 339, Beethoven Mass in C

October 31, 2017 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Book tickets now
Cadogan Hall,
5 Sloane Terrace SW1X 9DQ
+ Google Map

These three magnificent choral works from the Viennese classical period are performed
by top soloists, one of London’s finest choirs, Goldsmiths Choral Union, and the period
instrumentalists of Musicians of London. Haydn’s brilliant Te Deum was first performed
in 1800 in celebration of a visit to Austria by Lord Nelson. Mozart’s Vespers, written in
Salzburg around 1780, features his well-loved setting of Laudate Dominum. Beethoven’s
Mass in C, dating from 1807, is one of the most passionate of classical settings,
powerfully pushing the musical boundaries towards Romanticism.
