Petite messe solennelle - Rossini

On Saturday July 7th 2018 Pakefield Singers will be performing Rossini’s - Petite messe solennelle in St Edmund’s Church, Southwold at 7.30pm with Vetta Wise conducting.

This performance of the Petite messe solennelle, which commemorates the 150th anniversary of the death of Gioachino Rossini (1792-1868) is presented by Pakefield Singers, conducted by their Director of Music, Vetta Wise, who is well known for directing concerts to a high standard with great attention to detail.

The quartet of soloists are all based in the local area and include the internationally regarded mezzo soprano Diana Moore. She is joined by soprano Katalin Prentice, tenor Djinh Raoul Kamei, and bass Dhilan Gnanadurai.

The Petite Messe Solennelle is the most substantial of the works from Rossini’s Indian summer of composition and has instant appeal. As Rossini himself said, ‘Delight must be the basis and aim of this art’, and certainly this is a work not of profound religious insight, but one that is a delightful, life-enhancing musical experience brimming with beautiful melodies and sheer joi-de-vivre.
