Our next concert



Our concert on March 23rd features the wonderful Mozart Requiem. Written at the very end of Mozart's life, and left unfinished, we shall be singing the version completed by Franz Süssmayr.

Our soloists include three who have sung with us before and return by popular demand: Heather Wardle, Soprano; Francis Gush, Countertenor; and Matthew Keighley, Tenor. They are joined by an exciting new voice: Nicholas Perfect, Bass. We will be accompanied by the Regency Sinfonia.

The evening starts however with Haydn's fiery motet Insane et Vanae Curae. Originally part of Haydn’s first oratorio, Il ritorno di Tobia (The Return of Tobias), Haydn extracted this fine choral piece, rewrote the liberetto in Latin, and revised it as a stand-alone work. This is the version we shall be performing in the concert.

Two short but well known Mozart choral works, the Ave Verum Corpus and Laudate Dominum, are topped and tailed by two fine orchestral pieces.

We are conducted by Oliver Neal Parker, our Music Director.
