Masses for Double Choir
Sunday, February 23, 2020 - 9:00pm
Masses for Double Choir on this week's Choral Showcase. Joseph Rheinberger's Cantus Missae is in the 19th century German Romantic style; Edmund Rubbra's Missa Cantuariensis, sung in English, is firmly in the Anglican tradition; and Frank Martin's Mass for Double Choir is a sublime 20th century masterwork that hearkens back to the Renaissance.

Saint Clement's Choir, Philadelphia; Peter Richard Conte, conductor
