Crouch End Festival Chorus, under its conductor David Temple, joins with the London Mozart Players to perform Mozart’s Requiem, one of the greatest works in the choral repertoire. Commissioned in 1791 when the composer’s health was failing, Mozart created a work which was completed after his death by Süssmayr and contains some of his most sublime and evocative music.
CEFC also presents the World Premiere of a work by Jessica Curry, renowned for her award-winning scores for video games. Echo is based on an evocative Christina Rossetti poem combining passion and mystery.
Completing the programme is one of Brahms’s greatest choral pieces, the Schicksalslied (Song of Destiny).
