Missa in Angistiis  -  A Mass for Troubled Times

Saturday, 7th March, 2020     

Liskeard Methodist Church


East Cornwall Bach Choir invites you to our annual OPEN SINGING DAY.  Join us to rehearse and sing Joseph Haydn's magnificent work.

Joseph Haydn completed the work in 1798 when Austria was at war with the French.  Legend has it, that  during the first performance news came that Napoleon had just been dealt a stunning defeat by the British Navy led by Admiral Horatio Nelson in the Battle of the Nile. Thereafter this wonderful mass was known as 'The Nelson Mass'. Admiral Nelson and Lady Emma Hamilton visited the wealthy Esterhazy family in 1800 and very probably attended a performance of the mass.


Chris Howarth, ECBC music director, will conduct the workshop and evening performance.

For both the workshop and performance the choir and participants will be joined by a trio of excellent musicians:- Soprano Bianca Phillips; Jonathan Delbridge Pianist and Mark Hambly Percussionist.  


All levels of singers are welcome. ECBC choir members are available to 'buddy' less experienced singers - just let us know when you apply.

This promises to be a truly wonderful day of music – we look forward to seeing you there!
