2019 Singing Day: Gounod St Cecelia Mass St George's Singers St George's Church, Poynton (map)
Conductor Neil Taylor, Accompanist Peter Durrant

As a youth, Charles François Gounod intended to become a priest, but decided he was unsuited for the priesthood, and expressed his devotion in numerous works of sacred music. The Messe Solennelle de Sainte Cécile, dedicated to the patron saint of musicians, was his first major work, premiered in the Church of St Eustache in Paris on Saint Cecilia’s Day, 22 November 1855, and establishing him as a noteworthy composer. Gounod’s ability to compose dramatic music for the opera is clearly evident: the Gloria and Credo are famous for their drama, power and memorable melodies. Saint-Saëns ranked the Mass amongst Gounod’s best works, commenting ‘this serene light which rose before the musical world like a breaking dawn, troubled people enormously … at first one was dazzled, then charmed, then conquered’.

Tickets £22 to sing, £5 students, £5 audience. 9.30-10.15 am (registration for singers), 6.00 pm (concert).
