Stewart Hall Singers: Mozart Missa brevis in F, Vesperae solennes de confessore, and more!

  A message from Douglas Knight, director:  In May 2017 we will perform a “Mozart  plus ” concert featuring two sacred works by the celebrated composer. The concert will open with his  Missa brevis in F, KV 192  written in 1774; this work is of particular interest in his treatment of the Credo. Next on the programme will be his  Vesperae solennes de confessore KV 339  written in 1780; this was to be the last choral composition he would write for the Salzburg Cathedral.  The “ plus ” portion of the concert will be a collection of motets and madrigals by Palestrina, Arcadelt, Passereau et al., as well as contemporary works by such composers as Rutter and Sirett.  With:  Tamara Vickerd, soprano Danielle Vaillancourt, mezzo-soprano Patrick McGill, tenor Clayton Kennedy, baritone
