‘From the heart – may it return to the heart!’ These words of Beethoven’s, written above the beginning of his Missa Solemnis manuscript, sum up perfectly the profound nature of this greatest of choral works. With this Mass he achieved a new musical, dramatic and liturgical synthesis and achieved an apotheosis comparable to that of his Ninth Symphony. Performed as a short prelude to the work will be the winning entry of the Crouch End Festival Chorus competition inviting composers to set the words of Beethoven’s inscription.
