A masterpiece of the romantic era that showed Verdi as a true compositional craftsman, the requiem was not written with Verdi’s dying breaths but 27 years before he died. Originally planned to coincide with the 100th anniversary of Rossini’s birth in 1869 the Requiem finally took to the stage in Milan in 1874.
Our soloists for the concert are Ellie Parsons (soprano), Ruth Theobald (mezzo soprano), Robert Tilson (tenor), Themba Mvula (bass) together with the combined choruses of the Wrekin College Chapel Choir and Wrekin College Community Choir
