About

 

A ‘pastiche mass’ is a concert form where the constituent movements are taken from different mass settings, sometimes by different composers, usually used in concerts of early music. All mass settings may be performed in liturgical or concert form; the former within the context of the liturgy of the Eucharist, performed for a congregation, usually in a church, the latter in the context of music performed for an audience, usually in a concert hall.

Pastiche Mass was first presented in liturgical form during Lent 2019, in an Arts Chaplaincy service at Chelsea College of Arts, with edited versions of the ‘Ingloria’ and Credo. The version presented here includes a Gloria, for use outside penitential seasons, with full length exhibition versions of all works.
