Composers over the centuries have used the Mass form as a vehicle for inspiration in their musical ideas—a way to infuse song with spirit. From Haydn’s lively "Mass in F" to living composer John Rutter’s transcendent "Requiem", The MasterWorks Chorale and Music Director and Conductor Kip Coerper, ChM, have selected a program featuring traditional and modern musical interpretations of this timeless ritual. The performance will also include Schubert’s beloved "Mass in G", Grammy-winning composer Stephen Paulus' "Gabriel’s Message", and the luminous “In Paradisum” from Gabriel Fauré’s "Requiem". The March 18 concert by the 60-voice choir at St. Mary’s Church in Auburn will feature six vocal soloists and will be accompanied by a 24-piece chamber orchestra comprised of the area’s leading professional musicians.
