MASS IN TIME OF WAR
“The Seattle Choral Company brought chills and thrills to an appreciative audience . . .
from the first notes, the orchestra and choir delivered a stunning performance.”
The popular Mass in Time of War is one of the six late masses of Haydn which are among his finest works for chorus and orchestra. It was written in 1796, when Vienna was under threat by Napoleon’s army. Cannons could be heard in the city center. Those cannons are ominously portrayed by solo drums in the final movement, giving the mass it’s German name, Paukenmesse (Timpani Mass.) Our performance of Haydn’s masterpiece promises to be powerful, joyful, and emotional.
The Seattle Choral Company joins the Northwest Sinfonietta, their distinguished conductor David Lockington, and four superb soloists. Tickets are purchased directly through the office of the Seattle Choral Company (request form below.)
