War Requiem is celebrated as a moving and dramatic commemoration of the sacrifice of men, women and children in war. Combining excitement, passion and sensitivity, it leaves audiences breathless and exhilarated. We are particularly delighted to welcome the return of Marcus Farnsworth who conducted Chorus for many years, and now performs in his own right as an internationally recognised baritone and conductor. Collectively, the ensemble promises an afternoon of spectacular music, given even more meaning a century after the close of the Great War.
