Choral Eucharist, St Johns Church
Choral Eucharist free
St John the Baptist Church – doors open 10 am
A special service of Choral Eucharist to celebrate feva sung by St John’s Choir and friends, including Haydn’s Little Organ Mass and Mozart’s popular motet Ave Verum Corpus. A great opportunity to hear some wonderful choral music performed in the context for which it was written in the atmospheric surroundings of our ancient and historic parish church. The Missa brevis Sancti Joannis de Deo was composed by Joseph Haydn around 1775 and the Benedictus features a charming Soprano solo with organ accompaniment from which the alternative title of Kleine Orgelmesse (Little Organ Mass) is derived. The preacher at this service will be the Revd Canon Peter Moger, Precentor of York Minster.
