Todd: Mass in Blue

A showcase for jazz trio, choir and vocal soloist

Sunday 25 June 2023, 7.30pm St. Dunstan's Church, High Street, Mayfield £25, £8 (25 and under: Free) Book now

There are Coronation threads aplenty in the first half of this regal choral celebration. But the second half heads in an entirely different direction. What links jazz and a choral setting of the Latin Mass? The answer is Will Todd’s Mass in Blue, this year celebrating its 20th anniversary – a showcase for jazz trio, choir, and vocal soloist. The Mass in Blue is a genuinely novel experience, but one that feels as natural as a fusion of Jazz FM and Classic FM: smooth and easy on the ear, but gloriously unpredictable too.


The Mayfield Consort, Oxford Camerata, Olly Lallemant’s Jazz Trio and Jack Gonzalez-Harding (Organ) are conducted by Andrew Benians in this performance of Will Todd’s Mass in Blue.
