Verdi: Requiem - Oxford Chorus and Corona Strings perform in aid of 'Singing for Syrians'


Passionate, complex and profoundly moving, Verdi's setting of the Requiem Mass, premiered in 1874, is one of the most compelling pieces in the choral repertoire. Those who love the composer's operas will find much to relish in this work which, in this performance, is to be staged as it was originally conceived, without an interval and lasting approximately 90 minutes. The concert is in aid of 'Singing for Syrians'; the initiative run by the health and education charity, Hands Up.
