Lord Nelson Mass (Mass in Time of Distress) – F. J. Haydn
Chichester Psalms – Leonard Bernstein

Haydn’s “Lord Nelson Mass,” composed during the Napoleonic Wars with its celebratory
trumpets foreshadows Nelson’s victories. Bernstein composed Chichester Psalms shortly after
the assassination of President Kennedy. By combining Jewish and Christian choral traditions,
Bernstein was implicitly issuing a plea for peace in Israel.
