Newbury Choral Society - St Nicolas Church - Saturday 21st June 2014

Newbury Choral Society presents a programme of Romantic choral works and one of Mozart's most famous symphonies.

Puccini needs no introduction as the composer of some of the most popular operas ever written. His Messa di Gloria, a setting of the full Catholic Mass, bears all the hallmarks of his operas: drama, passion and memorable tunes. Sir Charles Parry's Blest Pair of Sirens is Victorian England's answer to romance with its rousing choruses and rich orchestral score.

The ‘excellent’ (Newbury Weekly News) Covent Garden Chamber Orchestra will also perform Mozart’s famous Symphony No. 40, a work that seems at once familiar and enigmatic.

Cathal Garvey will conduct, and the soloists will be tenor David Butt Philip and baritone Ashley Riches, who featured in the recent BBC2 programme Messiah at the Foundling Hospital.
