Will Todd’s upbeat setting of the Latin Mass for choir, solo soprano and jazz ensemble reflects his ‘double life’ as a classical composer and jazz musician. Written in 2003, the Mass in Blue is a brilliant fusion of pure jazz and blues with clear, strong choral writing, against which the piano, soprano and alto sax weave and blend in a delightful aural tapestry.
In the second half of the concert the choir, soprano and quartet present a selection of favourites from the Great American Songbook.
