New Year’s Celebration

Can you name this piece? Here's a hint: ... go seek

Note: the audio for this show will be available on January 11, 2011

Over half of this composer’s output involves voices in some manner, and the last six masses are considered to be the pinnacle of his contributions to the genre. As opposed to his massive duties during his earlier appointments, at the end of his life, this composer’s duties became less stringent later in life. His primary duty was to supply a mass each year for the performance in conjunction with celebration of the name-day of his employer’s wife.
