|The Addison Singers Present Mozart's Requiem|
Accompanied by Bernardi Chamber Orchestra, Musical Director David Wordsworth
The Addison Singers join four fine young soloists and their regular partners the Bernardi Chamber Orchestra to perform one of the best known works in the choral-orchestral repertoire at their next concert on Saturday 29th March.
The circumstances surrounding the composition and performance of the Mozart Requiem has been the subject of heated debate between musicologists and historians for over 200 years with even Hollywood putting it's own particular gloss on the story. Whatever the final truth, if indeed there is such a thing, the work contains some of the most dramatic and profound music ever to come from the pen of this great composer.
As always with concerts given by the Addison Singers, the new happily settles beside the old. In this case a setting of a text most famously set by Mozart 'Ave Verum Corpus' but here performed in a more recent version by the young English composer Joby Talbot, as well as new Motets by Howard Skempton and Chiswick composer Cecilia McDowall – all of whom will be at the concert.
St Michael’s and All Angels is one of the Addison Singers’ regular venues and it’s recently restored magnificent Arts & Crafts interior will complement what promises to be a rich and fulfilling evening.
