Autumn 15 draft smallThe Esterhazy Singers, performed Joseph Haydn's sublime Missa Cellensis in the beautiful surroundings of St Lawrence Jewry on Tuesday 27 October 2015. Written for the famous pilgrimage church or Mariazell in Styria, this festive mass has always been one of Haydn’s most popular works. The Esterhazy Singers, accompanied by Catherine Ennis (organ) performed the mass alongside German motets by Bach, Schubert, Mendelssohn, Brahms and others, in a programme that also included choral masterpieces such as Rheinberger’s Abendlied and Bruckner’s Christus factus est.

Rach vespers previewOne hundred years after its first performance, the Esterhazy Singers celebrated the centenary of Rachmaninov’s All-Night Vigil with a special performance of the much-loved work in the beautiful surroundings of St Andrew’s Church in Holborn. This masterpiece was sung in the original language with soloists from the choir. Arguably one of the finest works ever written for unaccompanied choir, the piece set texts taken from the Russian Orthodox All-night vigil ceremony and has been praised as Rachmaninov's greatest musical achievement.
