Snider Mass for the Endangered

Music of intense beauty combines with incredibly powerful words in Mass for the Endangered, a celebration of and lament for the natural world.

Drawing on her love of choral music from Gregorian Chant and Palestrina to Mozart, Fauré and Britten, Sarah Kirkland Snider creates a prayerful twist on the mass, rooted in spiritual contemplation and concern for the world around us. This is a stunning, immersive soundscape which will leave you profoundly moved.

The concert opens with Cameron Biles-Liddell’s Yr Afon Yn Yr Awyr (The River in the Sky), a playful depiction of the River Dee flowing through the Welsh landscape, followed by Judith Weir’s setting of three poems reflecting on our relationship with our planet. And Elgar’s much-loved Serenade for Strings, a favourite of the composer himself.
