Stravinsky: Mass

The talents of the acclaimed Britten Sinfonia Voices, conducted by Eamonn Dougan, are showcased in a special Easter concert featuring two masses written 170 years apart. Stravinsky considered function as important as form and composed his Mass, which many consider his finest religious work, for church use, writing 'religious music without religion is almost always vulgar'. The Mass features gorgeous harmonic colours, animating the text of the Roman Catholic liturgy with voice, wind and brass.

In the run-up to writing his own Mass, Stravinsky stumbled across a handful of Mozartís masses in a Los Angeles bookshop; Britten Sinfoniaís Easter celebration is completed by Mozartís beautiful Missa Brevis.
