  1. Petite messe solennelle - Gioachino Rossini

Ironically, Rossini’s Petite messe solennelle (Small Solemn Mass), is neither small nor particularly solemn! A naturally witty composer, it was entirely characteristic of Rossini to play with his audience’s expectations in this way. Most famous for his 39 operas, it might also be no surprise that, in this ostensibly religious piece, the vocal writing is unashamedly operatic.

In this the great composer’s final work, the music ranges from hushed intensity to boisterous high spirits, and abounds with the memorable tunes and rhythmic vitality for which Rossini became justly famous. It is a heart-warming and celebratory piece, bursting with humour, charm and sincerity.
