Matthew Brook bass

Peter Seymour conductor

Puccini          Messa di Gloria

Verdi              Quattro pezzi sacri (Four Sacred Pieces)

The composers of the two sacred works in this programme are, of course, much better known for their operatic work. Both compositions have an operatic imaginative power and musical beauty which equals that in their dramatic compositions. The Mass was written as a graduation exercise by the young trailblazer in his early twenties, and the 'Four Sacred Pieces' date from the last years of the old master’s life. Together they provide a festive conclusion to the University concert season.
