Will Todd Mass in Blue
Bernstein Chichester Psalms
David Gibson conductor
Mass in Blue is a relatively new work in the choral repertoire, having had its first performance in 2003. Todd’s flagship work is an upbeat jazz setting of the Latin Mass for SATB choir and soprano soloist which has been performed more than a hundred times around the world.
Bernstein’s Chichester Psalms will also be part of the programme. This particular work was originally commissioned for the Southern Cathedrals Festival and had its English premiere in Chichester Cathedral, with our own conductor, David Gibson, singing the part of the boy treble.
This programme promises to be a really exciting one, combining the best of choral music with the excitement of the modern jazz style.
