Vesperae solennes de confessore (K339) Missa brevis in F (K192) Ave Maria (K554) Sonata da chiesa (K145 & K336)
The Cherwell Singers presents an evening of church music by Mozart on Saturday November 16th at 7.30pm in Exeter College Chapel. The major works featured are the Vesperae solennes de Confessore and the Missa brevis in F, both written for Salzburg Cathedral when Mozart was under the employ of the Archbishop of Salzburg. Both works exhibit a freshness and inventive musical style that has made them enduring favourites in the concert as well as the church repertoire. The concert also includes two of the instrumental church sonatas interspersed between movements of the mass. As is becoming customary at Cherwell Singers concerts we will be joined by a small string group and continuo organ. Soloists include soprano Louise Lloyd and Lucy Ballard, Benjamin Durrant and Duncan Saunderson. We do hope you can join us for this evening of uplifting and cheerful music in the inspired setting of Exeter College Chapel.
