Mozart’s great Mass in C minor stands alongside his Requiem as one of his most towering works for choir and orchestra.  Solos to compare with the finest of those in his operas, and most notably the high Et incarnatus est for soprano, and choruses of majestic splendour, give the work a dramatic dimension which looks back to Bach and ahead to Beethoven. Mozart’s Mass in C minork represents one of the greatest composers of all time at the height of his powers.

Canterbury Choral Society and its Youth Choir will be joined by an outstanding group of soloists, and the period-instrument London Handel Orchestra, well known to our audiences and one of the country’s top baroque orchestras.

Concert will end at approximately 9.15pm.
