In 1817, the St. Nicholas Church in Leipzig staged a grand celebration of the 300th anniversary of the Reformation. Join us as we re-create this spectacular event, which will include the American premiere of a majestic Mass by Vincenzo Righini, a contemporary of Mozart, a work which Professor Jeffrey Sposato discovered in European archives while researching his new book Leipzig After Bach.
