About this event
The opening words of the Brahms' Requiem could almost serve as its motto: 'Blessed are they who mourn for they shall be comforted'. Rather than a Latin 'Mass for the Dead' it's a meditation on death for the living, suffused with almost unbearable longing compounded by hope and despair, sweetness and grief, intimacy and grandeur.
Schumann's widow Clara described it as 'an immense work that takes hold of a person's whole being like very little else'.
Large auditioned choir (conductor Adrian Partington) staging top quality concerts in Bristol at the Colston Hall and Bristol Cathedral. Typical season includes at least three large-scale concerts per year with orchestras (such as Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra) at the Colston Hall, plus a fourth at Bristol Cathedral as well as other events in and around Bristol. Presidents: Mark Padmore and the Lord Mayor of Bristol.
