Formby choral society November concert


Formby Choral Society's November Concert pairs Haydn's popular and magnificent Nelson Mass with Zelenka's relatively unknown but glorious Missa Purificationis Beati Virgine

Written in 1798, Haydn's masterpiece is now better known as the Nelson Mass, probably because Admiral Nelson and Emma Hamilton attended an early performance in 1800 rather than the popular idea that it was composed to celebrate Nelson's victory at the battle of the Nile. It is Haydn's largest mass as well as one of his most beloved choral/orchestral works, with the prevailing mood being one of joy and jubilation

Jan Dismas Zelenka composed his Missa Purificationis in 1733 and Formby choristers will be presenting only its second ever performance in the UK. Zelenka was a contemporary of J S Bach, being born 6 years before Bach and dying 5 years before him, so he was working at the peak of the Baroque era - and whilst his music has definite Baroque characteristics, it can also be thought of as anticipating Haydn. This is a fantastic work, a thanksgiving piece bursting with exuberance and vitality.

Accompanied by the Liverpool Philharmonia Orchestra and welcoming four fine professional soloists, Formby Choral Society will be putting on a superb event in the atmospheric setting of the church of Our Lady of Compassion, in Formby Village. Always popular, the November concert usually sells out, so be sure to get your tickets early.

DATE: Saturday 18 November 2017 at 7.30pm

LOCATION: Our Lady's Church, School Lane, Formby, Merseyside L37 3LW. TICKETS: £12, Under 19s Free. Available from Gifts in House, Chapel Lane, Formby or at or from choir members.
