Mass in D
with SHIFT Orchestra Project
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 This massive work has languished unpublished: LeClair made a new edition and
SHIFT Orchestra Project joins us for this premiere.

All of Cappella Clausura’s work and performances take place on Indigenous Lands. As an ensemble based in the Greater Boston area, we are on the traditional and ancestral homeland of the Massachusett, Pawtucket, Pokanoket, and Wampanoag Nations. We make this acknowledgement to offer recognition and respect to the original inhabitants of this place and to their descendants today, especially since the Indigenous history of this area has been erased for four hundred years. We ask our audiences to join us as we continue to learn about the history of this land and provide support for Indigenous communities.
