Verdi’s Four Sacred Pieces and the Messa di Gloria by Puccini combine their composers’ dramatic skills with musical beauty. Puccini’s Mass comes from the start of his career, written as a graduation exercise by the young trailblazer in his early 20s. Verdi’s Sacred Pieces date from the last years of the old master’s life. Together, they make striking listening in the glorious surrounding of the Minster.
Come and hear the University Choir and Symphony Orchestra in this festive conclusion to the University of York’s concert season!
