“André Messager (1853-1929) was a composition and Piano pupil of Gabriel Fauré (1845-1924). They collaborated during the summer of 1881 to compose Mass of the Fisherman from Villerville and the first performance was in aid of the fisherman's charitable association. The Mass comprises five movements; 1) Kyrie, 2) Gloria Benedictus, 3) Sanctus, 4) O Salutaris, and 5) Agnus Dei. Mass of the Fisherman from Villerville is a Missa Brevis for female choir accompanied by chamber orchestra. Given its specific arrangement for female voices, Fauré and Messager's Mass of the Fisherman from Villerville is an ideal and alternative performance work.&rdquo.
