Mogens Dahl Chamber Choir: Maundy Thursday concert

This event has taken place. See Upcoming events Here

This Maundy Thursday concert is part of the continued co-operation between the Mogens Dahl Chamber Choir and the Christian’s Church.  Easter is marked with two great works for choir and one for organ.Martin’s Mass and Pizzetti’s Requiem are two of the 1920s’ greatest sacred a cappella works. Both composers look to the distant past in their search for a musical platform after the collapse of civilization with the First World War. Though very different, they both choose to relate to renaissance and baroque poly-choral style.The Sanctus movement of Pizzetti’s Requiem is absolutely magnificent, composed in a style based on a technique from the old Venitian masters. The enlarged Chamber Choir will unfold to a 12 part paean.Programme:Frank Martin (1890–1974): Messe (1922) for two 4 part choirsOlivier Messiaen (1908–1992): Apparition de l’Église éternelle (1932) for organIldebrando Pizzetti (1880–1968): Messa da Requiem (1922–1923) for choir a cappella
