St. Bede the Venerable Church in La Cañada Flintridge Music Ministry is proud to announce its annual spring concert, featuring the works of Franz Schubert Mass in G and Beethoven’s “Hallelujah; Christ on the Mount of Olives,” on May 19 at 8 p.m.
The concert, which costs a donation of $15 for adults and $5 for children, will take place at St. Bede the Venerable, located at 215 Foothill Blvd.
Franz Schubert’s Mass in G was composed in 1815 in less than a week, the year after his first Mass had been successfully performed in Shubert’s home parish. The second Mass was originally more modestly scored than the first, which is characteristic for Schubert; he is more interested in an over-all devotional mood of a religious composition than in individualistic romantic text-expression, compared to those, for example, that Beethoven would use in his Masses.
“Hallelujah; Christ on the Mount of Olives” (Christus am Olberge Op. 85), is an oratorio by Ludwig van Beethoven portraying the emotional and dramatic humanistic portrayal of the Christ passion, which includes the popularity of the finale chorus “Hallelujah,” frequently performed by church, high school and college choirs.
