Mozart Mozart Mozart!

Chandos, with our friends from Croydon Philharmonic Orchestra and some new friends supporting us from Whitgift School Parents choir, enjoyed a super schedule of Mozart pieces.

Our soprano soloists for the night were the wonderful Elinor Rolfe Johnson and Augusta Hebbert, and we welcomed back Alex Pidgen as Tenor. Dixit Dominus, Exsultate Jubilate and Ave Verum Corpus were familiar to most, but Davidde Penitente sounded like a rarity.

However you would have recognised a lot of the music as being from Mozart's Mass in C, as it was 'borrowed' quite extensively for this commission. Words are Italian from the Psalms, and we really loved singing them and the audience made it clear that they did, too.
