Calvary Episcopal Church / $20 / 100 min / 3:00 pm
821 S. 4th Street

Pre-concert program with John Hale:  2:15 pm

The Lord Nelson Mass / F.J. Haydn

Requiem / W.A. Mozart

For the first concert of our sixth season we will perform two pieces that represent the greatest musical achievements of the classical period: Haydnís Missa in Augustiis of 1798 (The Nelson Mass) and Mozartís Requiem of 1791.  Each piece was written late in the composerís life:  Haydn was 66 and Mozart, only 35, was literally at the end of his life.  But neither age nor illness  prevented these two men from creating works that offer us what all great works of music do:  the better we get to know them, the more  they can surprise us, and the more they speak to us and to our own time.
