Great choral masterpieces by Dvorak and Mendelssohn can be heard in Birmingham on June 30th.
One of the region’s best amateur choirs, Birmingham Choral Union, will be performing Dvorak's Mass in D and Mendelssohn's German Liturgy in a concert which also includes Mendelssohn’s Prelude and Fugue in C minor for the organ.
Birmingham Choral Union’s conductor, Colin Baines, is one of the most well-respected figures in music-making in the Midlands and the choir will be accompanied by talented organist Darren Hogg.
Dvorak’s Mass in D was commissioned by a noted patron of the arts in Czechoslovakia, Josef Hlavka, for the consecration of his new chapel. Dvorak completed the charming and very accessible work in just three months in 1887 and showed his satisfaction with the work in a letter to his benefactor, when he wrote: “I am pleased to announce that I have finished the work and that I am supremely pleased with the result. I think it will be a work that will fully suit its purpose. It could be called: faith, hope and love for God Almighty…”
Mendelssohn has long been a favourite of Birmingham audiences. He travelled to England many times in the 1830s and 40s and conducted many of his own works at the Town Hall.
Birmingham Choral Union perform Dvorak and Mendelssohn at St. Paul’s Church, St. Paul’s Square, Birmingham, B3 1QZ on June 30th at 7.30pm.
