      A Festival of Masses
      Three settings of the Mass "Ordinary" from three different musical eras.
      June 3, 4, 5, 2011
      Campbell, San Francisco, Palo Alto

      Bay Choral Guild’s June 2011 concert showcases three complete Mass settings from the Renaissance, Romantic and Modern eras. Each of these glorious works is completely unique yet all are surprisingly related in the use of melody and dissonance in dramatic word painting of the sacred texts.

      "Missa O quam gloriosum est regnum" by Tomás Luis de Victoria (1583) is ethereally beautiful, with simple soaring lines and surprising dissonances.

      Equally lovely is the harmonically lush "Mass in Eb, Opus 109 for double choir" by Josef Gabriel Rheinberger (1878), a composer better known for his organ works.

      "Mass in G Major" by Francis Poulenc (1937) is rich in texture with flowing melody standing in counterpoint to modern, often dissonant harmonies.

      Our bonus work, "Benedictio", is a Prayer of Benediction, full of fireworks, from contemporary Estonian composer Urmas Sisask.
