Mass for Christmas

One of his grandest and most celebratory works, Francesco Cavalli’s elaborate concertato Mass setting is taken from his retrospective collection, Musiche sacre (1656). The music, rich in the colorful and potent combination of brass and strings for which Venice was renowned, will be performed in full liturgical context with appropriate chant and antiphons.
