Spring Concert: Stainer Crucifixion and Dvořák Mass in D

For their Spring Concert in Rochester’s timelessly magnificent Norman Cathedral, Rochester Choral Society will perform two very different choral gems, both composed in the year 1887.  Stainer’s devoutly penitential “Crucifixion” is a poignant contemplation of Man’s responsibility and reaction to Christ’s suffering and sacrifice. In lively contrast, Dvořák’s exquisite setting of the Mass in D brings the Latin text alive with harmonic light and shade, looking beyond guilt and death to the joy of resurrection and concluding with a quiet plea for peace, which we can all relate to in these troubled times. 

The choir will be conducted by John Mountford and accompanied on the Cathedral organ by James Norrey.

Vocal soloists will be:
Soprano – Harriet Mountford
Mezzo-Soprano – Rachael Curtis
Tenor – Clifford Lister
Baritone – Alistair Bamford
