Haydn’s stirring Lord Nelson Mass, composed as the celebrated British admiral defeated the French in the historic naval battle at Abukir, is the central work for this concert. Haydn’s original title for the work was “Missa in Angustiis” – “Mass in troubled times.” Indeed, the composer’s powerful music conveys the drama and color of the Napoleonic age.
Underwritten by a gift from Stephen and Alicia McAllister.
