Ireland These things shall be 20’
Smyth Mass in D 65’

We open the festival with Ethel Smyth’s magnificent Mass in D, which according to George Bernard Shaw was a sign of the rise of women composers. Smyth’s music carefully reflects the mood and content of the mass setting: the radiant, joyful Gloria triumphantly crowns this richly coloured setting.  Alongside this, a rare chance to hear John Ireland’s only substantial choral work, which offers a utopian vision of future peace and equality.
