    Vierne's Messe Solennelle is one of the best masses I have ever heard of and sung. The great chromaticism gives a great variety to the usual Mozarts, Palestrinas and Byrds that we do. Just love it!

    I first encountered the Vierne "Solemn Mass" about 20 years ago when my church choir sang the "Kyrie". The extreme chromaticism made it a change from the usual Haydn, Handel and Mozart, tricky in places but not impossible. I enjoyed it so much I asked the director if the rest...

    of the mass was as good. Several years later I found out the answer was yes. This Lent my new choir did the "Kyrie" along with those from the Mozart and Durufle "Requiems" and the Bach B Minor Mass. Only a few of us knew it going in, all of us will remember it from now on.
