Will Todd : Missa Brevis & Passion Music
with Will Todd and his ensemble

Saturday, 17 June 2023, 18:00 - 20:00
Southwark Cathedral, London Bridge. London SE1 9DA

*** Note : This is a 6pm start ***

Those who either witnessed or sang in Wimbledon Choral's performance of Will Todd's wonderful Mass in Blue in June 2011 will recall the fun, excitement and joy of singing that work.   Jazz and choral can and does work together really well.   Will Todd is a master at weaving these things together whilst retaining a suitable level of reverence as needed.

The text for the Jazz Missa Brevis is taken from the Christian Latin Mass settings and, reminiscent in some ways to the Mass in Blue, uses a mix of jazz styles in this relatively short piece - ranging from a swinging waltz to a Latin groove.

The Passion Music follows the same music fusion base but follows more of the Passion story by highlighting particular parts of it.  It opens with a version of Greater Love Has No Man and ends with the movement Were you there when they crucified my Lord?   To add to the mix, there is a soprano soloist who sings both on her own and with the choir.
