Premiere of my Mass "Blessed Hemming"

I am feeling happy and thankful after the successful premiere of my Missa in honorem Beati Hemmingi Episcopi (or simply Mass of Blessed Hemming). It was wonderful to hear this liturgical composition, which I worked on for 8 years, in its natural setting, i.e. as part of a solemn Catholic mass in the medieval cathedral of Turku. It was here that Blessed Bishop Hemming worked in the 14th century.

The Mass I composed for mixed choir, string orchestra and organ was premiered at the celebration of the Finnish Catholic Diocese at the Turku Cathedral on 13 August 2022. The performers were the Suomen Laulu Choir and the St. Michel Strings (Mikkeli City Orchestra) conducted by Esko Kallio, as well as organist Pilvi Listo.

My Mass is written in honor of the Blessed Bishop Hemming (1290-1366). It is late romantic in style and its duration is altogether about 35 minutes. I wrote this piece for eight years and finally completed it in 2020.
