All Flesh Is Grass For Clara Schumann and Johannes Brahms
The German Requiem has been a lasting favourite with concert audiences since the first performance in its final version in 1868. Scored for orchestra, choir, and baritone and soprano soloists, the work uses biblical verses, chosen by Brahms himself, expressing sorrow and consolation, instead of the usual Latin text of the Requiem mass.
Tickets £14.00 under 18s,students& unwaged FREE.

Bach St Mark Passion
Audiences who love Bach's St Matthew and St John Passions will be delighted by this skilful reconstruction of his lost St Mark Passion, by Andor Gomme. This uses a surviving libretto; choruses and arias from other Bach works, thought to have been reused in the original Passion, and beautiful recitatives set by Bach's contemporary Reinhard Keiser.
