Centrepiece announced for concert
12:13pm Thursday 26th September 2013 in Entertainments
FAURÉ’S Requiem will be the centrepiece of Salisbury Cathedral’s Remembrance concert this year.
The programme, which also includes Allegri’s Miserere and music by Bach, Elgar and Schutz, will be performed by the full cathedral choir of boys, girls and men, accompanied by organist John Challenger, pictured, and directed by David Halls.
Mr Halls, director of music at the cathedral, said: “Fauré’s Requiem is a masterpiece of great beauty and enduringly popular with performers and audience alike.
“It is inspiring and consoling in equal measure.”
The concert, which is on November 14 at 7.30pm, is one of the few times in the year when the entire choir can be heard in concert in the cathedral.
It will raise money for the cathedral’s Choral Foundation, which supports every aspect of the cathedral’s music.
Tickets, costing £12.50 or £10, are available from Salisbury Playhouse box office on 01722 320333, online at salisburycathedral.org.uk or at the door.
