Rochester Choral Society Virtual Concert: Mozart Requiem
July 4 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Rochester Choral Society invites you to enjoy our online performance of the Mozart Requiem, which will be available to view on YouTube from Saturday 4th July, 2020 – just follow the link from www.rochesterchoral.co.uk/concerts
We had intended to perform this deeply emotional and inspiring work as part of our Summer Concert in Rochester Cathedral, but this was cancelled by the coronavirus outbreak. However, although it has sadly prevented us meeting to rehearse and perform as a choir, coronavirus has not stopped our members from wanting to make music which might help raise people’s spirits through these difficult times. While looking forward to happier days when we can sing together again, we have made this performance by recording our individual voices in our own homes, and also included in our virtual choir some past and possible future members of the Society.
All video editing was done by our Musical Director, John Mountford
Vocal Soloists are:
Harriet Mountford – soprano
Andrew Leslie Cooper – Alto
David Booer – Tenor
Charles Cunliffe – Bass
Instrumental backing tracks are provided by ChordPerfect.com
The Requiem is intended to console those who mourn, requesting eternal peace for the departed, and this performance is dedicated to all those who have lost loved ones to coronavirus. It is free to view but, if you enjoy the music, please consider making a donation to the Charities Aid Foundation Covid-19 Response Fund at https://www.cafonline.org/covid-19-support or Help Musicians UK at https://justgiving.com/helpmusiciansuk
