This exciting concert will feature the worldwide choral hit – Mass in Blue by Will Todd. This is a contemporary fusion of the traditional Latin Mass with elements of jazz and blues. Mass in Blue has quickly established itself as one of the most treasured of all recent choral works.

It’s a brilliant blend of driving jazz grooves and clear, strong, choral writing against which the solo piano and solo soprano voice weave and blend in a delightful aural tapestry. This central work is complemented by beautiful musical settings of religious texts, infused with a highly individual and melodic style, bringing the composer’s lifelong love of traditional choral music into the 21st century with spiritual sensitivity and a contemporary edge.

Enjoy other jazz standards and performances from the Choir, the Quartet as well as solos from Tom Rainey on piano with Tessa Quayle, Jazz Soprano.

This will be a standout concert not to be missed.
