Frank Martin: Mass for Double Choir a Cappella
lldebrando Pizzetti: 
vOx's first concert in November features two of the 20th century's finest and most sumptuous Masses. Martin's Mass for unaccompanied double choir nearly never saw the light of day. For forty years the composer kept it as a matter between himself and God.  Fortunately for us, he was persuaded to have it premièred in the 60's. The music looks back to plainsong and Renaissance polyphony and to Bach, but in its rich and haunting harmony also points forward with hints of what we have now come to love in composers such as Eric Whitacre. 

The work is paired with Pizzetti's Requiem.  This Mass again looks back to the Gregorian tradition combined with a transcendently contemporary idiom.  Dedicated to his wife, the work finally gave Pizzetti the vehicle he needed to emerge from the shadow of his better-known Italian contempories, Puccini and Respighi.

Tickets: £15/u18s £7.50

July 13th, 17.00 - Waterperry Gardens, Waterperry
This year's concert of Shakespeare songs in the amphitheatre at Waterperry Gardens proved immensely popular - so popular that we've decided to repeat the experiment.  With the occasional accompaniment of wind in the trees, the choir delighted an audience who were also able to picnic and drink prosecco and, at the interval,  wander in Waterperry’s 8 acres of landscaped gardens, designed by Beatrix Havergal.  This year's summer repertoire is still to be confirmed but expect an idyllic concert to match the surroundings
Saturday 13 July,  5.00 p.m:  Waterperry Gardens, Waterperry  
Tickets: £15/u18s £7.50
