Mozart Requiem and Gjeilo Sunrise Mass


Dates: 29/10/2022

Venue: Tewkesbury Abbey

This is the opening concert of the Cheltenham Bach Choir’s 2022-23 season when the choir will be joined by its twin choir, the Göttinger Stadtkantorei, from Göttingen – Cheltenham’s twin town in Germany. The two choirs have exchanged visits roughly every two years since the 1950s, interrupted only by Covid.


David Crown, Music Director of Cheltenham Bach Choir said: “Cheltenham Bach Choir is delighted to welcome the Göttinger Stadtkantorei back for its first visit since the pandemic. There are few better ways to celebrate two such fantastic choirs coming together than with Mozart’s Requiem. This performance with massed voices, top young soloists and the Regency Sinfonia promises to be very special indeed.

“The combined choirs will also be singing the Sunrise Mass by the ever-popular Norwegian composer Ola Gjeilo. Those of you who already know his music – works such as the stunning O Magnum Mysterium – will not be surprised at the sheer beauty of this wonderful work. Join us for this grand celebration of music-making and friends reunited, in the wonderful setting of Tewkesbury Abbey.”
