‘One of the sins of my old age’ was how Rossini
described his Short Solemn Mass – which, famously,
is neither short nor solemn, and more akin to an
opera than a Mass! Full of exhilarating choruses,
memorable tunes and irrepressible good humour,
this extraordinary work is a true delight for
audiences and performers alike.
