Mozart: Requiem and Solemn Vespers – Friday 20 March
Mozart’s Requiem is one of the best-loved works in the choral repertoire. And no wonder. Its glorious, soaring music – at times full of rage, at other times tinged with immense tenderness, was started shortly before his death in 1791 and completed by his friends. The mysterious circumstances of how it was commissioned and completed have simply added to the allure of this moving requiem. It has delighted and intrigued music lovers ever since its first performance.
Written for use in the liturgy in Salzburg Cathedral, the Solemn Vespers (Vesperae solonnes de confessore) is less well – known (though you will recognise the beautiful soprano solo, Laudate dominum). But it is, of course, another gem.
We’ll be accompanied by Headington Singers Orchestra so expect a big, rich sound. As ever Sally Mears wields the baton. We’ll be serving drinks in the interval so you get chance to meet up with your friends and neighbours. All welcome!
When: Friday 20 March 2020 at 7.30pm
Tickets on the door £12/£10 (children free)
