The Oxford Bach Choir's summer concert mixes youth and experience. Haydn's Nelson Mass was written when its composer was in his mid-sixties, at a time of great international tension. It is arguably the finest of his many masses, filled with drama and a wide range of emotions from terror to joy. Handel's setting of the vesper psalm Dixit Dominus, on the other hand, dates from his visit to Italy in his early twenties. His first major choral work, Dixit Dominus bubbles with energy and excitement, and a youthful swagger. It is also a great vocal showpiece, full of music to test a choir to its limits. 

Duration: 2 hours with interval
