Book Tickets

Join us for Mozart's deeply-moving Requiem in D Minor K626, a work full of dramatic fire and tender lyricism. Our concert also includes Mozart's fine Piano Concerto in C major, K415, composed in Vienna in 1782-3 for one of Mozart's subscription concerts. Andrew Campling's 'A time to mourn; and a time to dance' completes the programme.

Mozart's Requiem in D minor K626 is a work full of dramatic fire and tender lyricism, rendered even more poignant by the composer's tragic death at the age of 35, leaving the Requiem incomplete. Completed by his pupil Sussmayr the Requiem displays Mozart's extraordinary ability to compose music of ethereal beauty and transcendent power. 

His Piano Concerto in C major K415 reveals the composer's more playful side, with music of sparkling wit and elegant refinement. As usual Mozart never wastes a single note - pace the remark attributed to Emperor Joseph II about one of the composer's operas: 'too many notes!'. This evening's programme is completed by Andrew Campling's 'A time to mourn; and a time to dance'. 

Commissioned by Julia Payne, this work for solo piano and strings was composed during the height of the Covid pandemic. The work received its first performance last year at a concert in Southwark Cathedral.

The choir soon grew and the first performance in April 1993 saw about 30 singers on the stage. Today, the choir numbers some 70 singers, aged from 20 to 70+ from a wide variety of backgrounds and professions, living and working all over London and beyond.

The choir performs mainly in churches in London’s Docklands and East London as well as in St. Paul’s Church, Covent Garden and – every few years – at Southwark Cathedral. When possible, concerts help raise money for a variety of charitable causes. The choir’s annual Christmas events are generally in aid of the homeless charity CRISIS and have raised more than £30,000 since the year 2000.
