Commissioned by a mysterious anonymous patron and only partially completed by the time of his death, aged only 35, in 1791, Mozart's much-loved, heart-breakingly beautiful Requiem is also one of choral music's most intriguing legends. From the mournful Lacrymosa to the fire and brimstone of the Dies Irae, this promises to be a stunning musical experience.
The concert also includes the opportunity to discover a more modern classic in the shape of Lux Perpetua, written by Jonathan Willcocks in 1998. Exciting and moving, this mini war requiem delivers a message of peace and unity.
WFCS and Worcester Cathedral Director of Music Samuel Hudson conducts.
