Mozart was 15 and already a busy composer and performer, when he attended three performances of the Requiem by Michael Haydn, younger brother of the famous Joseph.

Haydn wrote his work in 1771, formally to mark the death of his employer but – more significantly – much affected by the death earlier that year of his only child. It is a lovely work and very good to hear afresh.
When Mozart came to write his great Requiem some twenty years later, at the end of his life, it was modelled closely on the structure of that by Haydn, who had become a collaborator and friend.

Every section is deeply moving. It is said that Mozart was in tears as he sang the Lacrimosa on his death-bed to Süssmayer, who completed the work.

We shall have a rare chance to hear the two works together, and to appreciate the connections and resonances, which also were an influence on the way in which the Mozart was completed.

David Gould directs the Festival Choir and Orchestra, with four fine, and familiar, star soloists; two local – Fiona Canfield and Anton Rich – with Diana Moore and Jonathan Stainsby, whom are welcomed back.

Those under the age of 19 can come in for free, with a paying adult.
