Programme Note

In his ‘Little Solemn Mass’ Rossini reflected the contrast of his own witty exterior concealing religious belief. Here, joy is tinged with grief and anxiety, amid vocal writing of purity and pungency.

For this first ‘Proms at …’ matinee, in the stunning Old Chapel of the Old Royal Naval College, Greenwich, the BBC Singers and David Hill present the Proms premiere of what the composer called ‘the last mortal sin of my old age’.

There will be no interval

Booking opens at 9.00am on Friday 24 June
