Mozart                      Requiem
Janet Wheeler          I Sing and Ever Shall

New London Sinfonia
David Gibson    conductor

Mozart’s magnificent Requiem is a work shrouded in mystery. Beset by ill-health in the summer of 1791, Mozart was visited by a ‘mysterious man in grey’ who commissioned the work on the condition of utmost secrecy.
 
The concert also features I Sing and Ever Shall, an exciting choral work by the award-winning British composer Janet Wheeler. This work is a powerful exploration of the many aspects of singing – from the link between breath and air, words and song and the all-encompassing joy of producing music in this way. Featuring a cantata and a dance-style movement, the piece builds to a climactic concluding statement.
 
Enjoy a brand new composition together with a work of genius from the established choral repertoire.
