Paul Dyer says: "Children’s voices were part of the musical landscape in the Renaissance and Baroque. It is time to bring that glorious sound back to the Brandenburg stage and we are going to do it in a huge way."
The voices of one hundred children and the Brandenburg Choir weave through the extraordinary beauty of the Renaissance and climax with the rousing, celebratory chorus from Handel’s Messiah, the Hallelujah Chorus.
A composer of unchallenged genius, at the height of his powers, desperately tries to finish a lucrative commission – a requiem mass for the dead – while he himself is dying. It is impossible not to be moved by the poignant irony of Mozart’s Requiem.
Beginning in the Renaissance and ending in the Classical period, this majestic and moving concert features the Brandenburg Choir united with a spectacular children’s choir, selected in each city for this tour.
