Programme Note

This colourful programme features some of the 18th century’s most popular and invigorating music for chorus and instruments. Handel’s vivid setting of Dixit Dominus, composed during his stay in Italy, is one of his most virtuosic and impressive choral compositions. Vivaldi’s colourful Gloria pulsates with festive Venetian energy and is his best known, most popular choral work. Haydn’s late choral works display his consummate skill and imagination as a composer. The Nelson Mass is arguably his most electrifying and atmospheric mass settings, taking us on a musical journey where dark anxiety is dissolved in joyful triumph.

YBC is a top notch choir, tempos bright & pacy!” BBC Radio 3
