Brahms - Ein Deutsches Requiem
Wagner - Siegfried Idyll
This autumn, the 140 voices of Worcester Festival Choral Society are proud to bring one of the most inspirational of all choral masterworks to the majestic surroundings of Worcester Cathedral: Brahms's Ein Deutsches Requiem (A German Requiem). The composer’s largest single work, written to comfort those who mourn, features much-loved melodies from the powerful to the uplifting, in a deeply moving masterpiece that speaks to the heart.
First, though, the orchestra presents another Romantic-era favourite: Wagner's tender Siegfried Idyll. This beautiful symphonic poem – arguably the composer’s best-loved orchestral work – was a Christmas gift from Wagner to his wife.
Performed with internationally acclaimed soprano Rebecca Hardwick and baritone Julien Van Mellaerts, and accompanied by the superb Meridian Sinfonia orchestra, this magnificent concert will be conducted by Worcester Cathedral's outstanding director of music, Samuel Hudson. Join us to enjoy this wonderful music in grand choral and orchestral style!
