May 10th, 2007 - Mozart Requiem


If you have seen the film 'Amadeus' then you will be familiar with the myths surrounding the composition and completion of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's Requiem (1971.)


Yesterday saw the first in what is hoped will be a series of collaborations between the Leeds University Symphony Orchestra and the Choirs of Leeds Cathedral. A packed Cathedral yesterday witnessed a passionate performance of the Mozart Requiem conducted by Diocese of Leeds Choral Director, Christopher Johns.

The soloists were all drawn from the Cathedral choir itself: Laura Lamph (Soprano) Eleanor Corcoran (Alto) Peter Davoren (Tenor) and Dominic Rose (Bass.) The Cathedral Adult choir was joined by the Cathedral Boys' Choir for this performance.
