Mozart Requiem by Candlelight
The Chapel Choir will perform Mozart’s famous setting of the Requiem in St Martin-in-the-Fields, joined by the Brandenburg Sinfonia. They will also be singing Mozart’s beautiful and haunting motet, Ave Verum Corpus. Three Emma Members, Madeleine Holmes (1994), John Ash (2010), and James Savage-Hanford (2005), will be singing soprano, alto and tenor solos, respectively.
Friday 17 NOV 2017
A week before releasing their new recording of this work, the Choir of King’s College London, directed by Joe Fort, will perform at Emmanuel in the Queen's Building Lecture Theatre at 6.15pm. The Choir will be performing extracts from Schutz' (1585-1672) Psalmen Davids, Op.2 and the 1872 English setting of Brahms' (1833-1897) Ein Deutsches Requiem, Op. 45.
The three movements from Brahms’s German Requiem are in its 1872 English setting—as it was known in nineteenth-century England. The work is paired with two motets by Schütz that inspired Brahms’s composition.
All are welcome to the concert, which will last approximately 45 minutes. It will be followed by dinner at High Table for Members and their guests.
