Mozart: Requiem

Wheeler: I Sing and Ever Shall

Saturday 7th July 2018 7.30pm
Holy Trinity Church, High St, Guildford GU1 3RR

Mozart started writing his deeply emotional Requiem in late 1791, aged just 35. It is said that while composing it he shared a premonition with his wife, Constanze, that he himself would soon die. Sadly, Mozart’s vision proved correct because his Requiem was to be his last work; he died before finishing it. A friend, Süssmayr, completed it the following year at Constanze’s request.

Janet Wheeler’s piece "I Sing and Ever Shall" was commissioned by Southampton Philharmonic and David Gibson in 2016 especially to be paired with Mozart’s Requiem. The work celebrates the wonderful power and joy of singing.
