Mozart Requiem

Our next concert will be in Ely Cathedral on Saturday 22nd April 2023 at 7:30 pm when we will sing Mozart’s Requiem Mass and to complement the Requiem, we will also be performing Haydn’s Salve Regina.

Mozart’s Requiem ranks next to Handel’s Messiah as one of the best-known and popular works ever. Having received the commission from a mysterious stranger dressed in grey, he composed it as he was approaching his own death and did not finish it. He even believed he was writing his own Requiem, but his sketches only got as far as the Lacrymosa, which, it is believed, he was humming on his deathbed.

To complement the Requiem, we will also be performing Haydn’s moving Salve Regina.

With Susanna MacRae soprano, Emma Lewis mezzo-soprano, Richard Symons tenor, Harley Jones bass, Glen Dempsey organ, Camerata East leader Helen Medlock and Ely Choral Society.

The concert will be conducted by Andrew Parnell.

Tickets are on sale now at £25, £20, £10 and £5 for U18s from the cathedral box office or at www.elycathedral.org/events
