We are proud to present Of Trumpets and Angels, the world première of a setting of two of Donne’s Holy Sonnets by David Lancaster, winner of our 2017 composer competition. David already has a number of impressive choral works to his name, and we are delighted to be working with him on this exciting new venture. Read an interview with David here.

The theme of death and redemption in the Sonnets is continued in Mozart’s moving Requiem which draws on all his operatic and dramatic powers. With a poignancy deepened by the fact that Mozart himself died before its completion, it is full of memorable moments of yearning, awe and exquisite consolation.
