What Our Customers Say...

Description

Leather Binding, Uncommon

'Mors et Vita' is a three-part oratorio which premiered at the Birmingham Festival in 1885, conceived as a sequel to the successful 'La Redemption'.

'The Passion (The Seven Words of our Saviour on the Cross)' is here set to music by J. Haydn in an adaptation by the Reverent H. Clementi-Smith.

Charles Francois Gounod (1818-1893) was a French composer most renowned for his twelve operas, including 'Faust' and 'Romeo et Juliette'. He studied at the Conservatoire de Paris. He was extremely influential upon later French musicians.

Joseph Haydn (1732-1809) was a Classical composer hailing from Austria. Haydn was an extremely prolific and influential composer, being a friend and mentor to Mozart and the tutor of Beethoven.

Undated; dated from copies on Jisc.
