Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart — Great Mass in C minor, K 427
Vesperae Solennes de Confessore, K. 165

The 110-voice MARIN ORATORIO presents an all-Mozart concert, featuring sacred choral works from his late Salzburg period. This was when Mozart changed the face of church music with his full color brass sound: horns, trumpets, and three trombones! 

The featured work, the Great Mass in C minor, K. 427, is the most expansive and varied of all of his liturgical settings. The program opens with the sprightly Te Deum, K. 141 for strings and chorus, the timeless Ave Verum Corpus, K. 618, and the thrilling Exsultate Jubilate, K. 165 for solo soprano. Mozart’s choral favorite Vesperae Solennes de Confessore (Solemn Vespers) rounds out this memorable evening.
