In its first concert this season The Festival Chorus presents two great masterpieces.

Tippett's highly political oratorio A Child of our Time combines 5 negro spirituals representing the oppression of slavery with a story based on the murder of a Nazi officer before the second world war.

Haydn's Nelson Mass is so-called because it was written to celebrate the Admiral's visit to Vienna; it is also known and the Mass in the time of War.
