Organist James Busby accompanies Concert Choir. The MIT Concert Choir, directed by William Cutter, performed Haydn’s “Theresienmesse” Mass in B flat major and Benjamin Britten’s “Festival Te Deum” on Saturday, Dec. 8. The Theresienmesse, named after the Empress Maria Theresa of the Two Sicilies, is thought to have been first performed on Sept. 8, 1799. Britten’s “Festival Te Deum” is somewhat more recent, having been composed in 1944 for the centenary of St. Mark’s Church in Swindon, England.
