Messa da Requiem - CANCELLED

Gweneth Ann Rand

Unfortunately this University Music Society concert has been cancelled.


  • Philharmonic Orchestra and University Chorus
  • Daniele Rosina conductor
  • Julian Wilkins chorus master
  • Gweneth Ann Rand soprano

The music of the Messa da Requiem combines religious grandeur with operatic drama and passion, and contains equally exquisite writing for both chorus and soloists. It is notable for its emotional depth and variety shown, for example, in the terror of the 'Dies Irae', the dignity of the sorrowful 'Lacrimosa', the anxious pleading of the 'Libera me' and the spirited 'Sanctus'. The work is performed by the University Music Society’s Philharmonic Orchestra and Chorus, with guest soloists.


  • Messa da Requiem

Please note this concert has been cancelled.

If you have already booked, please contact THSH Box Office regarding refunds.

We’re really sorry for any disappointment and hope to return to our usual activities soon.
