Verdi’s much-loved Requiem is a highly operatic setting of the Catholic funeral mass for four soloists, double choir and orchestra. Unmistakably Italian in flavour, it was composed in memory of Alessandro Manzoni, an Italian poet and novelist whom Verdi admired.

This performance features over 180 singers from both Newbury and Billingshurst Choral Societies, accompanied by the London Ulysses Orchestra and four renowned soloists all under the baton of Cathal Garvey.

With these powerful massed forces and the stunning acoustic of the concert hall, this is a performance not to be missed.
