It’s this time of year again: Leaves are falling, the days are shorter, and in churches and concert halls we meditate vanity by celebrating the most beautiful, radiant, and impressive music every written: From Gregorian Chant to Mozart to Verdi and back again, the text of the Requiem is one of the most fascinating masterpieces, inspiring artists and musicians throughout centuries.
On November, 5th I will sing Giuseppe Verdi’s Messa da Requiem at 5 p.m. with the Konzertchor Darmstadt in the Darmstadtium.
For those who cannot wait for November to listen to these uplifting melodies, here an excerpt featuring the Göttinger Symphonie Orchester:
