Cheltenham Town Hall
Hearing Verdi's Requiem live offers audiences the drama of opera and the thrill of wonderful symphonic writing combined with stellar, virtuosic solo moments. Conducted by our Director of Music, David Crown, the choir perform this great work at Cheltenham Town Hall in November.
Verdi’s setting of the Latin Requiem Mass began as a memorial to Rossini and many thought it too dramatic for performance in church. This sacred masterpiece speaks of heaven and hell, fire and earth, darkness and light in music that is both terrifying and a sublime hymn of praise to God.
