I went to the Latin Christmas Eve Mass, great experience. We have great talent in JC. I was surprised by the Silent Night, which I believe was sung in German.

Just an FYI, according to NJ.com (Jersey Journal), the concert starts at 8:30 with mass at 9.

History will echo through the pews of St. Anthony's Church in Jersey City tonight.

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's Missa Brevis in C Major, K220 "Spatzenmesse" or Sparrow Mass will be performed at the church's Traditional Latin Mass. The concert will start at 8:30 p.m. with the Mass to follow at 9 p.m.

Simone Ferraresi, who earned his degree with highest honors from the Conservatory of Music in Ferrara, Italy, will be directing the Cantantes in Cordibus chorus and orchestra.

Ferraresi has also studied at the Academy of Music and Performing Arts in Vienna with the world-renowned pianist and musicologist Paul Badura-Skoda, and specialized in the interpretation of classical composers at the Royal Academy of Music in London. He was awarded the Diploma of the Royal Academy of Music and three special prizes for best performances in the final recital.

Written in 1775 or 1776 in Salzburg, Austria, Spatzenmesse debuted on Easter in 1776 at the Cathedral of Salzburg.

Located on Monmouth Street between Sixth and Seventh streets, St. Anthony's Church is also listed on the State and National Registers of Historic Sites.

Made the Jersey Journal and NJ.Com.

Btw, the rain is now supposed to end by 6:00 so that should help.

Christmas Beauty: Traditional Latin Mass with Mozart?s Missa Brevis in C Major setting in Jersey City, New Jersey





JERSEY CITY, NEW JERSEY- Mozart?s Missa Brevis in C Major, K220 ?Spatzenmesse? will be performed on Christmas Eve at the 9:00 PM Traditional Latin High Mass in downtown Jersey City?s historic St. Anthony?s Church located at Monmouth St. between 6th and 7th. Simone Ferraresi, the noted composer, pianist and conductor will be directing the Cantantes in Cordibus chorus and orchestra. A strong drive behind St. Anthony's performance of this classical sacred masterpiece is the many young parishioners who have recently joined the growing parish in a quickly gentrifyng city.


The Spatzenmesse or Sparrow Mass was written by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart in 1775 or 1776 in Salzburg. This Mass had its debut on Easter Sunday 1776 at the Cathedral of Salzburg.


A concert of Seasonal Sacred Music will begin at 8:30 and will include selections from Handel?s Messiah as well selections from the Renaissance and Romantic Periods. The program also includes the ancient Gregorian Chants sung by the Men?s Schola. Selections from Monteverdi?s Vespers and Vivaldi?s baroque masterpiece, Gloria will also be performed.


The director, Simone Ferraresi, studied at the Conservatory of Music in Ferrara, Italy where he earned his degree with highest honors; at the Academy of Music and Performing Arts in Vienna he studied with world renowned pianist and musicologist Paul Badura-Skoda. Maestro Ferraresi specialized in interpretation of classical composers; at the Royal Academy of Music in London, where he was awarded the Diploma of the Royal Academy of Music ? the highest examinable award given by the Royal Academy. He was also awarded three special prizes for best performance in the final recital. He is the founder and artistic director of the Ferrara International Piano Festival.


St. Anthony?s Church is listed on the State and National Registers of Historic Sites. The church built in the Victorian Gothic Style is a pristine example of a church untouched by modern elements and remains a true example of Roman Catholic aesthetic rarely seen today. The church parking lot is located on 6th St. between Coles and Monmouth Street and is easily accessible from the Grove Street PATH, the Newport PATH and Light Rail stop.
