Tickets are available now at Oxboffice for the next exciting concert Missa Superba in our 2015 series. We are delighted to be welcoming Andrew Parrott as guest director for this project which will feature a first UK performance of Missa Superba by Johann Kerll, a composer and teacher very well known in mid to late C17th Vienna, loyally supported in his work by Emperor Leopold I. Kerll’s music and compositional skill was admired – and copied- by composers much more familiar today, including JS Bach and Handel. There will be a full supporting programme of works by other composers associated with Vienna at the time, accompanied by a band of violins, sackbuts and continuo.
