DETAILS FOR SINGERS

Our musicians. The conductor for Mozart at Midnight is Gerald Wirth, once a chorister with the Vienna Boys’ Choir and now its Artistic Director and, since 2013, its President. He is also the founder of the Wirth Music Academy, working to develop the musical talent which it believes to be inherent in every child. Orchestral accompaniment will be provided by the Wiener Domorchester, with soloists chosen from amongst local professionals.

Scores. Mozart’s Requiem will be sung in Latin using the Sussmayr completion. Editions published by either Novello or Barenreiter are compatible. Buy from your local music shop if you are lucky enough still to have one, otherwise Blackwell’s Music Shop in Oxford offer a knowledgeable and efficient service: contact them by telephone on 01865 333582 or email them at printed.music@blackwell.co.uk.

Learning the music. This will be a most prestigious concert: in 2018 there was standing room only in this vast cathedral, and we urge you to learn the music thoroughly before you leave home. If you’ve never sung Mozart’s Requiem before, ChoraLine has an app for choral singers enabling you to tune in and learn your part whenever you have a few spare minutes: visit https://www.choralineapp.com/. ChoraLine CDs and MP3 files are now available from Presto Music: type ‘choraline Mozart Requiem’ into the search box, and all the voice options will come up.

What to wear. This will be a formal concert and the details of dress will be sent out in the month immediately prior to departure. There is heating in the Stephansdom, but it may still be chilly: stock up on thermals to layer under your concert clothes.
