Cora Voce - Winter ConcertsJoseph Haydn, Missa in Angustiis
We'll be joining the NW Repertory Singers and the Rainier Symphony, directed by Dr. Paul Schultz. The Missa in Angustiis is Haydn’s largest, well-known and beloved choral work. His only mass set in a minor key, it is far from the dark style of Mozart’s Requiem written in the same decade. The orchestra features trumpets and timpani giving it a decidedly military feel. First performed shortly after the Battle of Trafalgar in honor of Lord Nelson who is credited with annihilating Napoleon’s forces.
