BERLIOZ Requiem (Grande Messe des Morts)

Sir Colin Davis conductor
Barry Banks tenor
London Symphony Chorus
London Symphony Orchestra

A popular highlight of various City of London Festivals in the past, Berlioz’s monumental Requiem nevertheless remains a rare and special treat - and a fitting celebration for CoLF's fiftieth birthday. Poignant, reflective music is contrasted with brass ensembles blazing away in the four extremities of the Cathedral and twelve timpani thundering in dramatic fashion beneath the dome! 

St Paul’s Cathedral, with its magnificent dome, provides cavernous acoustics not unlike those of Paris’ Les Invalides, for which Berlioz wrote the Grande Messe des Morts in 1837. Do not miss the opportunity to witness Sir Colin Davis – one of the world’s most revered Berlioz experts and one of Britain’s finest conductors – lead over 200 musicians through this immense work.
