Mozart’s Requiem is music of pure gold – shining genius, radiant beauty, profound humanity.

The composer’s final act of creation, written in the face of death itself, the Requiem transcends fear and despair to affirm the power of life and hope. It’s one of the greatest works ever written for choir and orchestra, bursting with passion, drama and immense tenderness: a transformative experience both to sing and to hear. 

Alongside the Requiem is the simple yet sublime Ave verum corpus. And keeping company with Mozart in this concert are J.S. Bach and contemporary Australian composer Iain Grandage with two contrasting visions of our place in the universe: the irresistible joy of Bach’s motet Singet dem Herm ein neues Lied, and Grandage’s gentle humanist prayer to nature and innocence, Why Do We Exist?.

Sydney Chamber Choir, one of Australia’s leading small choirs, is joined for this intimate performance by The Muffat Collective, led by Matthew Greco and featuring many of Sydney’s best period instrumentalists, together with a stellar line-up of soloists.
