Cumbria Rural Choirs 2019
Concert: 23rd March 2019
Mozart - Requiem; Haydn - Seven Last Words
Directed by John Butt
Our most recent concert took place in Carlisle Cathedral on 23rd March, when we joined with Keswick Choral Society, Ullswater Choir (Penrith) and independent singers in Cumbria Rural Choirs, together with professional soloists and the instrumental accompaniment of the British Sinfonietta, for the performance of two major works:
- The seven last words of Christ (German: Die sieben letzten Worte unseres Erlösers am Kreuze), by Joseph Haydn
- Requiem in D minor, by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
The audience filled the Cathedral and the concert was very well-received. For a full review, please see the Cumbria Rural Choirs website.
