Charles Gounod Messe Chorale (Choralemesse)

Smile A suggestion for a piece of music for a inexpensive concert is this mass. It is set for SATB choir, doesn't have any soloists and has an organ accompaniment and is about 28 minutes long. It is a beautiful mass not without its challenging bits and it is a shame that it doesn't get more of an airing. There is a recording available on the Apex label where it is paired with the Saints - Saens Mass No 4.
