featuring Beethoven’s Missa solemnis
Celebrate the 80th anniversary of the Masterworks Chorale and the 250th birthday of Ludwig van Beethoven with his sublime and monumental Missa solemnis. Like the symphony was for instrumental music, the mass was the genre par excellence for choral music. The Missa solemnis is one of the most extraordinary settings in the grand tradition of the mass and one of Beethoven’s greatest compositional achievements.
