Description:

The Sacred Heart Cutlural Center sets a dramatic backdrop for two major works for choir and orchestra highlight the opening concert of the Augusta Choral Society's season.  Haydn’s Mass in C Major is also known by two other names: Missa in tempore belli (A Mass in Time of War) and Paukenmesse (Kettledrum Mass).  With Napoleon’s army on the move, Austrians were fearful and mobilizing for war.  We can hear and see those ominous shadows in Haydn’s setting of the mass. And Karl Jenkins’ setting of the traditional Latin hymn, Te Deum is nothing if not full of brass and percussion, wildly theatrical, and joyous in the extreme.
