The Cathedral Bluffs Symphony Orchestra continues our exciting 2016/17 season on Saturday, March 11, 2017 at 8:00 p.m. The program includes Mozart’s Requiem in D minor and Faure‘s Requiem in D minor, Op. 48. A combined choir of over 100 singers from the Bach Elgar Choir (Hamilton), St. Joseph’s R.C. Church Parish Choir (Hamilton) and the Grand River Chorus (Brantford), will perform.
The sublime Requiem, which Mozart struggled to finish before his death, is quintessential Mozart in its heart-wrenching beauty. Faure‘s humble masterpiece stands out for its peaceful and serene mood as the composer himself said, “purely for the pleasure of it”.
