Rossini, Petite Messe Solennelle (Sat 15 Jun 2013)
Lichfield Cathedral Chorus will be giving a performance of the Rossini Petite Messe Solennelle with piano and harmonium accompaniment.
The Petite Messe Solennelle was composed in 1863 and was one of the last major works that Rossini composed. However, whilst solemn in subject, this work still has characteristics of his earlier comic opera compositions.
