Praetorius: Mass for Christmas Morning, Hull
2 December 2017, 7.00pm
To celebrate the 500th anniversary of the Reformation, this December Gabrieli revive Praetorius: A Lutheran Mass for Christmas Morning. This glorious reconstruction of a typical 17th century Lutheran Christmas Mass – the 1994 recording of which remains Gabrieli’s bestselling release on Deutsche Grammophon – is beloved the world over, and for good reason. Blending intimate solo vocal colours with historical instruments of every shape and size and massed choirs of professional and amateur voices, this is German baroque music at its most thrilling and dynamic.
Join us for the first performance of the revival on Saturday 2 December, 7.00pm at Hull Minster, where we’ll be joined by young singers from our Gabrieli Roar partners Bradford Catholic Youth Choir, and the David Ross Educational Trust Youth Choir in an event forming part of the final month of Hull UK City of Culture 2017.
