The world premiere of Missa Brevis for choir, orchestra and organ by Auckland composer, Chris Artley (winner of ten international composing competitions), takes place at Holy Trinity Cathedral, Parnell on the evening of Saturday 10 March 2018.

This work is just over 20 minutes long and in five moments: Kyrie, Gloria, Sanctus, Benedictus and Agnus Dei. This premiere performance is to be given by the combined forces of The Graduate Choir NZ, Holy Trinity Cathedral Choir and Organist, together with the Auckland Symphony Orchestra conducted by Peter Thomas.

The concert also includes the Finale from Saints-Saëns Organ Symphony, a selection of choral works by composers including Grieg, Howells and Stopford and solo works performed by cathedral organist, Philip Smith, showcasing the brand new Nicholson organ.

"I have just finished reading the completed score of Missa Brevis by Chris Artley. I must say that I am very proud to be the one who invited Chris to compose this work for Choir, Organ and Orchestra. It’s a beautiful composition, and I am really looking forward to rehearsing and performing it. Bring on March 10th!

I already know that the performers will relish playing this work and that the audiences are in for a real treat. Chris manages to create music that is well-crafted, which provides a sense of accessibility, while also giving depth and meaning. His melodies are lyrical, his harmonies are warm and lush, but include a few surprises, while his rhythms will at times keep us on our toes'." - Peter Thomas, Director of Auckland Symphony Orchestra
