Mass in D by Dame Ethel Smyth (1858-1944) PREMIERE ALERT!
Suffragette, composer, and famed memoirist, Smyth’s outsized personality made her friends amongst the upper classes who introduced her to Queen Victoria for whom she played her Mass on the piano, singing all the parts (now that’s chutzpah). The Queen ordered a full performance in the new Victoria and Albert Royal Hall. This massive work has languished unpublished: Amelia LeClair made a new edition and SHIFT Orchestra Project joins us for this premiere.
