Next Sunday – Michael Haydn’s Requiem

CCC Haydn RequiemNext Sunday, November 23rd, the Central Coast Chorale, augmented by the SUGC’s Chamber Choir, will be performing Michael Haydn’s Requiem in C (MH155), a ‘Mass for the late Archbishop Sigismund’, Archbishop of Salzburg and Haydn’s patron. Reminiscent of, and probably an influence on, Mozart’s Requiem written 20 years later, this is a great work that will be enjoyed by all lovers of the classical period.

Accompanying the Requiem will be two shorter pieces by Mozart himself – Ave Verum Corpus and Inter Natos Mulierum.

Choir and orchestra will be directed and conducted by Christopher Bowen OAM, in the beautiful setting of St John the Baptist Church, Blackwall Road, Woy Woy.

Both for those who heard the Requiem and Inter Natos Mulierum performed by the Grads in the Great Hall of Sydney University last May and for those who did not, this is an opportunity to become better acquainted with these very lovely choral works.

The performance will take place at 2:30pm. Tickets will be available at the door: $30 Adults; $25 Concessions; $10 Students; under 12’s free of charge. Further information from the Chorale.

    And there I was thinking old Mozart was dead, but a performance by himself, not to be missed!

    Looking forward to this concert — will be nice to sing the Requiem again. And the Inter natos will keep us on our toes!
