CBS Music Presents Mozart Requiem

CBS Choir and Orchestra
Christchurch

CBS Choir and Orchestra present Mozart's Requiem, with Exsultate Jubilate, and Regina Coeli. August 25, 3 pm.

The famous Requiem was popularized mainly by the film Amadeus, which painted the composer creating music for his own death at the instigation of his rival Salieri. Much of that remarkable story is historically accurate, and its last pages were dictated on Mozart's deathbed in 1791. Nevertheless the work contains some of his most heartfelt and expressive writing.

The CBS Choir presents a Solemn Mass at 10:30 am every Sunday in St Mary's Pro-Cathedral exploring a wide repertoire through orchestral, contemporary, polyphonic and plainsong Mass settings. Regular concerts and recording opportunities, which feature the associated Cathedral Orchestra, include an annual St John Passion and Messiah. During many overseas tours, the CBS Choir and Orchestra have performed in most major cathedrals and churches throughout the world. Their Musical Director for 44 years has been Don Whelan MNZM.
