Highgate Choral Society, North London

Mass in St Stephens Basilica, Budapest
Budapest 2011

29 April to 2 May 2011

The choir enjoyed a very successful tour of Budapest in 2011. We sang in two masses, one in the beautiful St Stephen's Basilica, and performed two concerts, both to packed houses and to standing ovations. 

The programme included Liszt Missa Choralis, Handel Zadok the Priest and My Heart is Inditing, Dyson Hierusalem and Mozart Laudate Dominum with local soprano Katalin Szutrely, Parry I was Glad, Byrd Ave verum and Ronald Corp Elegy for Himself. 

As an encore, the choir performed Kodaly Esti Dal, in Hungarian, to rapturous applause.
