Haydn: Theresienmesse (Maria Theresa Mass)
Mozart: Regina Coeli K108
Domenico Scarlatti: Salve Regina in A
Grandi: Laetamini vos o caeli
Scarlatti’s poignant setting of the Salve Regina, an impassioned
plea to the Virgin, is a neglected masterpiece which tonight
receives one of its first modern performances from Catherine
Mozart’s Regina Coeli is another beautiful yet rarely heard
piece for soprano and chorus, whilst Haydn’s large scale Mass
presents a real tour de force for the choir. With its novel fugues
and fascinating details at every turn, this setting is claimed to
show the “composer at the height of his powers.” Little wonder
that the Empress Maria Theresa, Haydn’s devoted admirer, kept a
copy for herself to sing!
