ECHOES FESTIVAL | Come and Sing the Victoria 'Requiem'!
Did you know that choir practice is healthier than yoga?
If you are an amateur singer passionate about classical music with some prior experience of choral performance, treat yourself to an uplifting one-day workshop on 11th November. On this day of national Remembrance we will be working on a performance of Victorias monumental 'Requiem' to be held in the beautiful acoustic of the Wallace Collections sumptuous Great Gallery. Come and see what this feel-good craze is all about it's the perfect opportunity to exercise AND socialise! Known as The Spanish Palestrina, Tomás Luis Victoria (1548-1611) is considered one of the most important composers of the late Renaissance. His 'Requiem' is one of the most astonishing-ever settings of the Requiem Mass, replete with grief and passion - the summation of both his art and the Spanish sacred choral tradition. A unique opportunity to work with one of the UK's leading choral directors, youll be amazed how quickly you can learn a new piece.
Members of the public are welcome to attend the final concert performance at 4.00pm. Admission is free.
This event is part of Echoes Festival 2017 organised by ILAMS and the Cervantes Institute in collaboration with The Wallace Collection and Lacock Courses
