Back Bay Chorale: Mozart and Handel

  • St. Cecilia Church 18 Belvidere Street Boston, MA, 02115 United States (map)

Join us for an invigorating musical feast with three triumphant works that celebrate the power of music.


Zadok the Priest
One of the famous Coronation Anthems, this work has been performed at every British coronation since 1727 (King George II)

Ode for Saint Cecilia’s Day
On text of John Dryden, the Ode honors the patron saint of music with a glorious representation of music’s role (harmonia mundi) in the creation of the world


Coronation Mass
Mozart’s first mass composed for the grandeur of the Salzburg Cathedral, this work is renowned for its vivacious spirit, and a soprano aria that foreshadows later operatic triumphs.  For many decades, it was performed at royal observances at the Imperial court of Vienna
