Bruckner, Palestrina & Allegri

Bruckner’s majestic motets and monumental Mass in E Minor form the centrepiece of this concert to mark his 200th birthday.  A sacred symphony, Bruckner's Mass draws inspiration from Renaissance Rome and the timeless elegance of Palestrina. Allegri’s ever popular Miserere – once shrouded in secrecy and renowned for its soaring soprano lines – completes the programme.

Running time approx. 2 hours, including interval.

Bruckner Locus iste, Ave Maria, Ecce sacerdos, Inveni David

Jeffrey's introduction to the season

"We celebrate the anniversaries of Gabriel Fauré (d.1924) and Gustav Holst (b.1874) and the 200th anniversary of Anton Bruckner’s birth.  Continuing a long history of artistic collaboration with many Birmingham companies (Kokomo, MAC, Black Voices, BRB), we perform his magnificent Mass in E Minor with CBSO wind playersThis sacred symphony is one of Bruckner’s greatest works."
