West Australian Symphony Orchestra: WASO Chorus Sings: Cherubini’s Requiem

15 May @ 2:30 pm - 4:00 pm AWST

The WASO Chorus return to the magnificent acoustics of St Mary’s Cathedral to perform Cherubini’s Requiem in C minor. This ethereal, highly dramatic and ultimately transcendent work was revered by Louis XVI, Marie Antoinette, Berlioz and Beethoven. In a special transcription by Andrew Foote for Chorus and Organ, the WASO Chorus gives this magnificent work a new lease of life.

If I were to write a Requiem, Cherubini’s would be my only model. – Ludwig van Beethoven
