All Day Workshop
Brand New Baroque!
A day singing ZELENKA Missa Divi Xaverii
Mass for the Feast of St Xavier, 1729
This amazing work was written in 1729 but not published until 2016
A contemporary of J S Bach, Zelenka was born near Prague and spent much of his working life in Dresden. In recent decades, efforts have been made to produce performing editions of his choral works, including this Mass setting for the feast of St Xavier, which was published in 2016.
This day gives you a chance to sing this neglected work and to appreciate its beauty.
To get the best from the day participants should have some experience of part singing and music reading.
