Rossini 'Petite Messe Solennelle'

  • St Martin's church, Church Square, Basildon SS14 1DX (map)

Described by Rossini as "the last mortal sin of my old age", Rossini saw no reason why sacred music should wear a pious and penitential frown.  Indeed, the Mass is neither very "petite" nor that solemn (!), but rather it is a splendid operatic outpouring, whose arias and choruses are of grand proportions.
