Standing ovation - Splendour
Last night’s Splendour concert was reviewed by Richard Young of The Beat magazine.

“The Karen Schuessler Singers kicked off their 2009/2010 season on Saturday night with two sublime masses – Franz Josef Haydn’s Mass No. 3 in D, better known as The Lord Nelson Mass and Franz Peter Schubert’s Mass No. 2 in G. Presented under the banner title Splendor, both pieces of music were magnificent.”

It’s Haydn year! To commemorate the 200th anniversary of Franz Josef Haydn’s death, the Karen Schuessler Singers performs Haydn’s greatest choral work, written at the end of his life – the much loved and exuberant Lord Nelson Mass, plus Franz Schubert’s Mass in G, full of graceful melodies and good spirit. With full orchestra featuring Orchestra London players and four outstanding soloists, including soprano Beth Horst and bass-baritone Giles Tomkins.
