About the Event
Even in the depths of the Second World War, the Hungarian master Zoltan Kodaly expressed his faith and his hope in a startlingly original Missa Brevis. Its demands for a grand organ accompaniment are met by the magnificent Casavant instrument at First Presbyterian Church. Kodaly’s sacred fervor is offset by secular part-songs from Clare Maclean and Mårten Jansson.
Join us for Pastime with Good Company, where collaboration underpins every performance. We have invited some of St. Louis’s finest instrumentalists – on strings and keyboards – to present with us canonical choral works that have typically been outside our repertoire. We celebrate towering figures of classical music this season, while continuing our commitment to women composers and new works. And we go back 'on the road' to explore some of St. Louis's best acoustics in six spectacular venues.
