Royal Free Singers - Rossini/Petite Messe Solennelle
Born in 1792, Rossini composed 36 opera and earned a fortune by the age of 37. He then wrote almost nothing until he later settled in Paris, where he wrote this piece, amongst others.
Originally scored for two pianos and a harmonium, Rossini re-scored it for full orchestra 4 years later. However, it is the original version, which the Royal Free Singers will be performing, which has become a key item in the choral repertoire, popular with choirs and audiences alike.
