Concert: Verdi Requiem (13 April 2019)
Verdi’s wife Giuseppina observed that: “A man like Verdi must write like Verdi”, and so he did! Filled with quite extraordinary drama and emotional intensity, Verdi’s Messa da Requiem was a resounding success in Italy from its first performance under the baton of the composer. In our day, there are few choral works which, as they explore the depths of humankind’s reaction to grief, can capture the imagination and stir up the spirit in quite the same way.
Come and join Lichfield Cathedral Chorus, under the direction of Cathy Lamb, with soloists and the Darwin Ensemble Chamber Orchestra as they give their own interpretation of this mighty work – and prepare to be moved!
