Did you know that choir practice is healthier than yoga?
If you are an amateur singer passionate about classical music with some prior experience of choral performance, treat yourself to an uplifting one-day workshop on 11th November. On this day of national Remembrance we will be working on a performance of Victoria’s monumental Requiem to be held in the beautiful acoustic of the Wallace Collection’s sumptuous Great Gallery. Come and see what this feel-good craze is all about – it's the perfect opportunity to exercise and socialise!
One of the crowning glories of the Spanish Renaissance tradition, the astonishing 1605 Requiem was written for the funeral of Maria of Austria, the daughter of Emperor Charles V, but was also Victoria's own final work. Austere yet radiant, the 6-part polyphony reaches an almost mystical intensity of expression which represents the summation of Victoria's art.
You’ll be amazed how quickly you can learn a new piece with the help of our friendly conductor Aidan Oliver - one of the UK's most sought-after choral directors, he is director of the Philharmonia Orchestra's professional chorus, Philharmonia Voices, and his engagements as guest chorus master include the BBC Symphony Chorus, BBC Singers, RIAS Kammerchor Berlin, English National Opera, and Huddersfield Choral Society.
