An Evening of Beethoven and Schubert



7:30pm  Saturday 25 April 2015 – Church of St Mary the Virgin, Monkseaton, NE26 3SF
Tickets £8.00

The group sing two favourite classical/romantic works

Beethoven Mass in C
Schubert Mass in G


Mass in C is often overshadowed by the immense "Missa Solemnis," written some fifteen years later, it has a directness and an emotional content that the latter work sometimes lacks. The Schubert written in the space of a week, is famed for its simplicity and song-like melodies.

Soloists:
Mary Houlton Soprano
Emma Banks Alto  
Richard Pinkstone Tenor 
Robert Seaton Bass
Nicholas Butters Accompanist
