Bruckner Mass in E minor

Bruckner Sacred Motets:
Ecce Sacerdos
Virga Jesse
Ave Maria

Dvorak Serenade for Wind

Saturday 6 June 2015, 7.30pm

Canterbury Choral Society

Conductor: Richard Cooke

VENUE: Canterbury Cathedral

Bruckner’s immensely powerful Mass in E minor, as well as his motets, reflect the deep religious background to Bruckner’s sacred choral writing, making great, almost Beethovenian, demands of the choir, and combining the rich romantic harmonies of the late nineteenth century with stylistic features harking back to Renaissance composers such as Palestrina.  The Mass progresses to a conclusion of utmost beauty, uplifting and inspirational.  Written for the reverberant acoustic of the cathedral of Linz in Austria, where for many years Bruckner was organist, its slow-building climaxes of telling splendour equally suit the acoustic of Canterbury Cathedral.

Concert will end at approximately 9.15pm.
