‘Mass in Blue‘ combines British composer Will Todd’s twin backgrounds of jazz and church music. Since its premiere in 2003, it has been capturing the imagination of choirs and audiences worldwide with its setting of the liturgical Mass in jazz and 12-bar blues. We’re delighted to welcome soprano Lorna James as our soloist for this work.
Inspired by Handel’s ‘Messiah‘, Joseph Haydn was sixty-five years old when he embarked on ‘The Creation‘ in 1796. When, two years later, he was urged to bring it to a conclusion more rapidly, he replied, “I spend much time over it, because I intend it to last a long time.” It surely has, and remains probably his best loved choral work. We are pleased to welcome soprano Grace Watkins as our soloist.
KVU Singers look forward to presenting these contrasting works for our spring concert.
