Festival regulars the Addison Chamber Choir and conductor David Wordsworth join the 2018 Spring Series. The first half comprises a recent piece by Master of the Queen’s Music, Judith Weir (who is the Addison Singers' Featured Composer for 2017/18), John Gardner’s entertaining Five Hymns in the Popular Style, which present very well-known hymns — including Abide with Me and Fight the Good Fight — in a rather unusual light, and Mozart's serene Ave verum corpus. In the second half, Mozart's Requiem, in the unusual version arranged by Carl Czerny (of terrifying piano studies fame) for piano duet accompaniment. Join us for this concert of old and new in the fine acoustic of St Katharine Cree.
