Exeter Northcott Theatre

The last major composition written by the Italian composer Rossini, his Petite Messe solonnelle, will be performed by Exeter Philharmonic Choir in June as part of its summer concert at the Northcott Theatre - a performance combining musical drama and colourful, memorable tunes.

Rossini’s Mass is a work of contrast and intensity, written five years before his death in Paris 151 years ago. Despite its title, it is neither ‘small’ nor ‘solemn’ but reflects the great talent which saw Rossini produce 39 operas in his lifetime.

In 2018, Edgelarks retreated to a remote Cumbrian cottage to write. With world rhythms, folk roots, and a very big sound for only two people, the album that emerged is an upbeat celebration, an incitement to hope. Join them as they celebrate the launch of Feather with a UK tour. Edgelarks began their musical journey together living in a small caravan in the hills near Exmouth, Devon. Phil had returned, Chaturangui in tow, from studying slide guitar in India with the master musician Pandit Debashish Bhattacharya. Hannah had grown up playing fiddle at traditional folk sessions.
