St Martin’s Autumn Choral Concerts

Haydn Nelson Mass

Online Access


The concert will be available at 7.30pm on Saturday 5th December, and for 30 days following.

Haydn’s Mass for Troubled Times received its premiere on the same day that Austria heard that Horatio Nelson had led a stunning defeat over Napoleon, and the great Admiral later heard the piece for himself on a later visit to Vienna himself, thus cementing the work’s nickname – the ‘Nelson’ Mass. Whilst we can’t offer you naval fireworks on the banks of the Nile, we can offer you choral fireworks near the banks of the Thames, courtesy of St Martin’s Voices and St Martin’s Players.
