Portsmouth Festivities mark the end of their 2018 programme with a performance of Stravinsky’s Mass. The piece demonstrates freedom of expression, freedom of language, and freedom of faith
Stravinsky wrote: “I wanted my Mass to be used liturgically — an outright impossibility as far as the Russian Church was concerned, as Orthodox tradition proscribes musical instruments in its services.”
This event takes place from 10:30am to 11:45pm on Sunday 24th June, and is free and unticketed.
