This paper discusses the process of preparing Bozza's Messe solennelle de Sainte Cécile for performance. The intention is to offer a complete understanding of the piece as well as a general understanding of Bozza's compositional style and importance as a contributor to the brass repertoire. Included are not only aspects of performance practices, but also some analysis of the piece as well as the general style and background of the composer.
Bozza's Messe Solennelle de Sainte Cecile is a rarely performed work that requires many performers and much rehearsal. This paper is the documentation of the journey toward a performance of the work as intended by the composer, with full instrumentation and performed in its entirety. It should not only serve to provide information about and analysis of the piece, but should also serve as a guide to the performance of the piece.
