Rossini Petite Messe Solennelle

Contrary to its title, the Petite Messe Solennelle, written late in Rossini's life in 1863, is neither solemn nor small; his mass brims over with the colour and drama to be found in any of his earlier Italian operas. Although originally written for performance as a salon piece with the unusual instrumentation of two pianos and harmonium, the Mass transfers successfully to the concert hall. The appeal of melodic operatic solos and lively choruses securing its place as an iconic choral work of the 19th century.
