Haydn Chamber Orchestra and Festival Chorus

Michael Haydn’s Requiem in C

and

CPE Bach’s Magnificat

in a HOT CHURCH. Heaters were a-blazing on the evening of the first day of summer 2015. The place was packed. The concert was free.

Well I didn’t catch one word, didn’t even know what language they were singing in but boy, it was beautiful. The chorus is tight, the conductor is crazy energetic, the cellos stole the bass and I loved all the soloists. Music was soaring up to the rafters and under Jesus’ armpits up on the gaudy crucifixion ceiling- hanger above the nave or whatever that front part of the church is called.
