  • June 09, 2012 A great listen

    I had stumbled upon the fact that Rossini had originally written this "small" piece for harmonium and two pianos, so I bought the score. It IMO is not a "sacred work" in the sense it could be used in church on an average Sunday. It requires a very talented vocal...

    group as well as accompanists. It does possess wonderful harmonies, great writing and to simply sit with the score and CD is worth the time. In a concert setting it would be a wonderful crowd pleaser, not for the faint of heart, the solo parts are quite intricate, as well as the SATB chorus. It is difficult enough to keep all those involved busy, the forces required for performance are pretty big for a mass called "petite".
