Hilary Term Concert 2018: Rossini Petite messe solennelle

 

Our Hilary term concert is just a couple of weeks away! This year’s performance of Rossini’s Petite messe solennelle on the 21st and 22nd of March are sure to be two brilliant nights of choral music, not to be missed!

Rossini composed the Petite messe solennelle in 1863, 34 years after his last opera. With one review at the time reading:

“One could sense, from the first measures, the powerful spirit which animated this artist thirty years ago at the time when he chose to put a stop at his glorious career at its culminating point. The composer of William Tell stands proudly before you in his eminence, and you realise with astonishment that neither time nor inactivity have caused any loss of the intelligence with which he is so marvellously endowed.”

Be sure to join us in the wonderful surroundings of the Trinity College Exam Hall for our final concert of the academic year.

Tickets available here!
