In case you missed it, Mozart’s Great Mass in C minor was the centrepiece of a BBC Prom on the television last night. A stunning performance from The Dunedin Consort conducted by John Butt. The tenor Benjamin Hullet (a past SCS soloist), a brilliant chorus, and some of Mozart’s most dazzling writing for the soprano voice. (He had his new wife in mind).

I’m so pleased we have two of our finest sopranos for this extraordinary writing, Louise Wayman and Elspeth Piggott, accompanied by Instruments of Time and Truth.

The interval talk is fascinating. You will love catching up on iPlayer and do spread the word!
