Guide Award winners on song with show in Petersfield

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
