Cavalli’s Magnificat is a joyful and unjustly neglected work in the grand Venetian polychoral style pioneered by Monteverdi.
Thy Kingdom Gone, composed by our late President, Sir John Dankworth, was commissioned by the Danesborough Chorus and given its premiere in June 1983.
Mozart’s glorious Requiem, which forms the climax of this concert, is one of the most famous works in the entire choral repertoire. Do come and join us as we celebrate 40 years of outstanding and eclectic music-making.
