Mozart: Coronation Mass in C is one of his best known and most popular mass settings. From the opening  triumphant Kyrie to the haunting, reflective Agnus Dei, it combines heart-stoppingly beautiful melodies with exciting choral textures that are a joy to sing. Though first composed in 1772, this setting only acquired the title of ‘Coronation Mass’ in 1792 when it was sung during the coronation of Francis I in Prague. He couldn’t have wished for better!


Morten Lauridsen: Lux Aeterna  from one of America’s best known contemporary choral composers Lux Aeterna (1996) consists of five connected movements. Each movement is a setting of a different sacred Latin text that includes references to light and wonder. The opening and closing movements clearly echo Lauridsen’s haunting O magnum mysterium whilst the central movement, O nata lux, is another spellbinding a cappella motet which has become increasingly popular with choirs and singers world-wide. Lux Aeterna is a must for all fans of Lauridsen’s work and a fantastic introduction to contemporary choral repertoire.
