Sacred Arts Festival: Rossini: Petite Messe Solennelle The Reid Consort, directed by Cole Bendall

11th August 2019 @ 7:30 pm – 9:00 pm

Gioachino Rossini’s last work, the Petite Messe Solennelle (Little Solemn Mass), was composed in 1863. Rossini was living in Paris, having stopped writing operas over 30 years previously. He described the mass as ‘the last of my sins of old age’. It was originally scored for twelve singers, including four soloists, accompanied by two pianos and a harmonium. In this performance the accompaniment will be four hands piano.
