The first half of the concert consists of a selection of seasonal anthems by Victoria, Pärt, Wood, Mozart, Mendelssohn and Rutter as well as organ music by Messiaen. The second half will be a performance of Fauré's Requiem. The concert will feature soloists Mary-Louise Aitken (soprano) and Robert Pecksmith (organ), who can also be heard on our new CD. We are looking forward to returning to Douai Abbey, where we recorded our first CD Requiem æternam in July 2011.
