On Saturday 29 November the Saint James’s Singers and Players will perform Verdi’s monumental Requiem in All Saints' Church, Leamington Spa. This concert will involve choirs from all over the area and London. There is a stellar line up of soloists: Soprano - Cheryl Enever, Alto – Lorna Perry, Tenor – Ed Harrisson, and Bass – David Soar.
All but one of Guiseppe Verdi's masterworks are operas. This poses a problem for those who are not opera buffs. Fortunately, though, that one exception is his stunning Requiem, into which he poured the same vibrant emotion that thrills opera fans. Indeed, more than a few critics have hailed the Requiem as Verdi's finest opera.
The concert is dedicated to the memory of Tim Britten, who was such a devoted and loyal Founder Friend of the Saint James’s Singers.
