Following a number of postponements due to Covid-19, this event will now take place in July 2022 (date as above).

Our venue will still be Central Hall Westminster, a superb concert space in Parliament Square, right in the heart of London, and we are sure you will love to sing in this prestigious venue, which is both architecturally and acoustically superb. The programme, conductor and solo artists are unchanged (see More information), and we will post more details here when they are finalised. For the moment we have removed the links to the booking page, but will update everything as soon as we can, including how to book singing and audience seats. Please put the date in your diaries.

Join us – in the audience or in the chorus – at Central Hall Westminster for one of the all-time choral favourites: Mozart’s Requiem. The timeless appeal of this work is matched only by the unending fascination over the circumstances of its composition. An unknown visitor having commissioned him to compose the work in secret, Mozart began to write, but suffered feverish delusions in which he imagined that the visitor was Death and that the Requiem was for his own funeral. He died from rheumatic fever a few months later with the work incomplete, and the known facts have since been embellished by a good deal of imaginative fiction!

Before the Requiem there’s more Mozart to enjoy: the dramatic overture to Don Giovanni, and the ever-popular Clarinet Concerto (soloist: Anna Hashimoto).
