    One thought on “Petite Messe Solennelle: Performing Score”

    1. Petite Messe Solennelle gives one a wonderful, yet peculiar, singing experience. Master Rossini wonders about some not so obvious harmonies accomplished by nontrivial melody lines. The result has glimpses of genius. On the downside one should state that the process towards such a result is not so perfect regarding the chorus who have to deal with these uncommon harmonies and rather illogical lines and, of course, a somewhat overall lack of variety throughout the piece.
