The second concert of our spring season is built around the structure of a Mass, hence its Latin name, Missa. It features Mass movements by two composers born a century apart and motets by two approximately contemporary but contrasting composers. Some of the music was conceived as liturgical music, but all of it is definitely more concert music today. None of these four composers quite fall into the category of household names, although all four definitely deserve recognition as excellent choral composers. The writing is assured, the textures varying, the sound created rich and the vocal lines carefully wrought – and all this is achieved in an idiosyncratic way. Whilst respecting musical tradition, each composer has found a voice of his own.
