Our Autumn 2024 Concert is celebration of the genius of W. A. Mozart.

Mozart’s powerful ‘Requiem’ is among the greatest and most popular of all classical choral works.  It was composed during the final year of Mozart’s life, left unfinished at the time of his death, and made infamous by the mysterious and intriguing rumours surrounding its origins.

Throughout this emotionally-charged and magnificent masterpiece, Mozart explores the darkness of grief, vengeance, loss and sorrow, the comfort of courage, consolation and deep compassion, and the power of redemption and deliverance – through music that exudes unforgettable and profound beauty and existential drama.

In complimentary contrast, is Mozart’s ‘Vespers For A Solemn Confessor’.  Comprised of six movements, this stunning and eloquent work evolves from bold exuberance, through the tranquility and serenity of profound reverence, and concludes with a fanfare of glorious, exultant rejoicing.

A truly wonderful programme not to be missed.
