The Cecilia Chorus of New York Presents Beethoven’s Missa Solemnis
May 6 at 8:00 PM
Carnegie Hall

The Cecilia Chorus of New York, Mark Shapiro, Music
Director will present Beethoven’s Missa Solemnis, op. 123, Friday, May 6
at 8:00 PM in Carnegie Hall’s Stern Auditorium/Perelman Stage, 57th
Street and 7th Avenue in Manhattan.

Maestro Shapiro writes, “There can be no doubt that Beethoven intended
Missa to be his quintessential spiritual tract, a distillation of all he
believed. The sacred Mass text would again be pressed into service
(after the out-of-town tryout that was the Mass in C) as a vehicle for a
grand devotional statement, something he was concurrently tackling, in a
more secular humanist vein, in the Ninth Symphony. The Missa would be
large-hearted – about everything, and everybody. It would be vast and
all-encompassing. And yet, its inscription reads “Von Herzen – Möge es
wieder – Zu Herzen gehn!” (“From the heart – may it return to the
heart!”). Personal.”

The concert will be presented with orchestral accompaniment.

Tickets for the May 6 concert range from $25 to $85, and can be
purchased online at,
by calling CarnegieCharge at 212-247-7800 or visiting the box office at
57th St and Seventh Ave.
