Don’t miss this opportunity to hear the all-too-rarely performed Dvořák’s Requiem, one of the great masterpieces of choral music, packed with haunting and uplifting melodies and stirring harmonies. Combining a sensitive and passionate response to the ancient words of the Requiem Mass with Dvořák’s command of symphonic development, it is powerful, exciting, and moving.  A compelling musical narrative is woven through the timeless human preoccupations of fear, death, hope and transcendence in this magnificent work set for chorus, soloists and large orchestra by a composer at the height of his inventive powers
