St. MARY'S CHURCH NANTWICH
Nantwich Choral Society - Summer Concert
Our Summer Concert at St. Mary's Nantwich included a performance of "Mass in Blue" by the British composer Will Todd.
First performed in 2003, Will Todd's Mass in Blue is a dynamic, uplifting, and highly popular jazz setting of the Latin mass. The work features driving grooves and blues harmonies, with provision for short piano solos (notated or improvised) and great moments of musical interplay between soprano soloist and choir.
The programme also included popular songs arranged for choir and soloist by Cole Porter, George Gershwin and their contemporaries.
