REVIEW: Paradise Lost at Wedgewood Rooms, Southsea

Have your say

Fresh from winning the trophy for Best Classical Music Act at The Guide Awards, the Renaissance Choir will tackle a peak of the choral repertoire tomorrow (7.30pm).

The 40-strong group, based at Emsworth, will sing Mozart’s Requiem – said to have been composed at the command of a shadowy figure who knocked on the composer’s door at dead of night – at St Peter’s Church, Petersfield.

The Requiem is described by the choir’s conductor, Peter Gambie, as Mozart’s most powerful music. It will be performed with organ accompaniment by David Gostick, with a trombonist engaged for the Tuba Mirum.

The programme also includes Victoria’s Missa Salve Regina and James MacMillan’s In Splendoribus Sanctorum.

Tickets cost £12 (concessions available) from (023) 9247 5259 or
