Programme Note

Mozarts Requiem Mass in D minor is undoubtedly the most famous of all unfinished musical compositions: composed in Vienna in 1791, the work was only partially complete when Mozart died of a fever on 5 December and was completed the following year by Franz Xaver Sussmayr, in order to fulfil the original commission by Count Franz von Walsegg, an amateur chamber musician who routinely commissioned works by composers and passed them off as his own!

Tonight we hear the Requiem alongside Bach'™s 1733 Magnificat, a stunning extended setting of the Virgin Mary's speech from Lukes gospel for choir, soloists and orchestra. The Royal Hospital's own, critically acclaimed Chapel Choir, which is formed from some of London'€™s finest professional choral singers and musicians, provides the chorus and soloists, and William Vann, Director of Music, conducts.

NB. Please note change of venue.
