About The Event

The London Choral Sinfonia

Kim-Lillian Strebel - soprano

Anna Harvey - alto

Nick Pritchard - tenor

Duncan Rock - bass

Michael Waldron - conductor

Arvo Pärt

Cantus in Memoriam Benjamin Britten

Parry

Songs of Farewell

Mozart

Requiem in D minor K626

The concert opens with Pärt's haunting Cantus in Memoriam Benjamin Britten, and continues with Hubert Parry's tender Songs of Farewell. Composed during the First World War, Parry wrote these arresting settings in the knowledge that he himself did not have much time left – he died two years after their completion.

In a continuation of the LCS's Requiem Project, the programme culminates with the Mozart Requiem, a work filled with agony, anger, triumph and beauty.

There is a pre-concert recital at 6.30pm.
