BBC National Orchestra and Chorus of Wales: Bruckner Mass

Saturday, 26 October 2019, 3.00pm

Bruckner’s Mass in E minor, composed for the dedication of Linz Cathedral in the 1860s, is itself a soaring cathedral in music for eight-part chorus, winds and brass. Bruckner’s motet Ecce Sacerdos (Behold the Great Priest) features three magisterial trombones alongside the Chorus, while Judith Weir’s setting of Psalm 148 unusually pair the singers with a single, solo trombone. And Adrian Partington looks forward to a second encounter with Elizabeth Maconchy’s Dylan Thomas setting, And Death Shall Have No Dominion, for chorus and brass: he performed in its premiere 50 years ago as a choirboy at the Three Choirs Festival!
