Beethoven: Missa Solemnis

Sunday 12 March 2023, 5:00 pm

Sheldonian Theatre, Oxford

In March 2020, with just hours to go before our performance of the Missa Solemnis, the pandemic forced us to cancel the concert.  Since then, the choir has been determined to perform Beethoven’s late masterpiece, one of the towering achievements of Western sacred music.  This titanic work, which still demands enormous physical and emotional input, will be performed with the orchestra and soloists who were originally to have performed with the Oxford Bach Choir.

Conductor: Benjamin Nicholas

Soloist: Katherine Crompton (sop) Suzanna Spicer (mezzo) Justin Lavender (tenor) Edward Grint (bass)

Orchestra: London Mozart Players

Duration: 90 minutes

Tickets: To be confirmed closer to the date
