Our talented resident choirs bring Fauré's much-loved and beautiful Requiem to the stunning surroundings of Temple Church. Artistic Director of the Festival, Bob Porter, conducts the handpicked Brandenburg Singers in a first half full of choral favourites through the ages, from William Byrd's Ave verum corpus in the Renaissance to Morten Lauridsen's O magnum mysterium from more recent times. In the second half they will be joined by the Brandenburg Festival Chorus, fresh from their Come-and-Sing workshop with Bob a few days before.
