Opera composer Rossini wrote an ironic dedication in the score of his Petite messe solennelle: "Dear God, here it is, poor little mass."


G. Rossini Petite Messe Solenelle (arr. Wijnand van Klaveren)

"Is it really sacred music or have I made sacrilegious music? I was born for opera buffa, as you know. So be blessed and grant me paradise." Amsterdam Sinfonietta and Nederlands Kamerkoor, conducted by artistic director Candida Thompson, meet in this compelling 19th-century work, a subdued mass full of drama and stillness, grand gestures and moving moments, in a completely new version for string orchestra, harmonium and chamber choir.
