I don’t know who Frank Martin was, but Kent Tritle does and a good thing; so we heard Martin’s Mass for Double Chorusa cappella for the first time. The singers that inhabit SMSS are uniformly wonderful and they filled the church with sound, SMSS, I get it!
And then Mozart’s Requiem, with Rachel Rosales and Jennifer Lane and Brian Stuki and Matt Boehler and the the orchestra and chorus and …. We can’t know how innovative Mozart was because we are so used to hearing him. This near final piece never disappoints. Rachel is my favorite soprano so this was an even bigger treat. Twenty years of this series and every concert is a surprise . Twenty more Kent!
