Bath Spa University Concert: Vierne – Messe Solennelle

Bath Spa University Choir
Bath Spa University Chamber Choir

Musical Director – Francis Faux
Organist – Shean Bowers

The Messe Solennelle by Louis Vierne is one of the composer’s most enduring works, alongside his six organ symphonies and is an unforgettably potent yet charming addition to the choral repertory. Laced with unmistakably French harmonies, beguiling, melodic chromaticism and powerfully dramatic refrains, the work is a seldom performed masterpiece.

The Bath Spa University Choir and Chamber Choir will also be performing Rachmaninov’s Bogoroditse Dyevo as well as music by Whitacre, Nystedt, Casals and Chesnokov.

Tickets £5-10 from Bath Box Office
