A Mass of Masses

  • St Peter's, Eaton Square, London (map)

For its debut in the acclaimed Eaton Square Concerts series, Londinium brought together no fewer than four settings of the Mass. Two are classics of the repertoire: Josef Rheinberger's sumptuous double-choir Mass in Eb (“Cantus Missae”), Op.109, and Ralph Vaughan Williams' beloved Mass in G Minor which, in reaching back to sixteenth-century models, breathed new life into English choral music. Alongside them, we performed two shorter settings: the highly attractive Missa Brevis by Richard Rodney Bennett, and the radiant Chichester Mass by the American composer William Albright.

Richard Rodney Bennett: Missa Brevis
Josef Rheinberger: Mass in E flat (“Cantus Missae”), Op.109
William Albright: Chichester Mass
Ralph Vaughan Williams: Mass in G Minor
