Calvary Chorale presents Contrasting Masses II

The Calvary Chorale will present Contrasting Masses II featuring a Solemn Mass by Louis Vierne and A Little Jazz Mass by Bob Chilcott. Also on the program will be several anthems by Verne and Chilcott as a transition between the two musical styles. Solemn Mass was written by Louis Vierne, a French composer, in 1899 and originally scored for two pipe organs.

 A Little Jazz Mass was originally scored for treble voices and became so popular that Chilcott rescored it for SATB choir. Bob Chilcott is a contemporary British composer, well educated in a variety of musical genre, including classical and jazz. A perfect blend of the Latin Mass and the Jazz idiom, you’ll hear a relaxed, easy tempo in the Kyrie, a driving upbeat Gloria, a jazzy lullaby in the Sanctus, a strong forte at Hosanna and a quiet, peaceful “Dona nobis pacem”. 

The mass will be accompanied by a jazz trio which will include Jonathan Clancy on drums, Jefferey Clearman on piano and Stephen Groat on string bass. 

Please join Kevin Davis and the Chorale and our talented musicians for this exciting and intriguing concert!
