Peterborough Cathedral Choir and Youth Choir, the Cathedral Festival Chorus, Peterborough Choral Society and East Anglia Chamber Orchestra are joining forces for this special performance of Mozart’s Requiem and Joseph Haydn’s Little Organ Mass.
The choirs and orchestra are combining together for the first time, and they will be under the direction of the Cathedral’s new Director of Music, Tansy Castledine, who took up the post in September 2018.
Mozart’s stirring Requiem was initially composed in 1791, but was completed in the following year by Franz Xaver Süssmayr following Mozart’s death. Haydn’s Little Organ Mass was composed in 1775.
The performance will be part of the Cathedral’s commemorations to mark the 100th anniversary of the Armistice, as well as being part of Peterborough Cathedral’s continuing 900th anniversary programme for 2018.
