CANTORES SALICIUM AND CAMERATA SALICIUM
Mozart’s Requiem is a fitting work for the centenary of the armistice. The fact that the composer died whilst writing it gives a poignancy
and timelessness to the music and the completion by his pupil, Franz Xaver Süssmayr, means that it is in effect a collaborative composition.
We are delighted to have a small chamber orchestra to accompany the choir in this concert. The group includes young players and music
students, whose collaboration will enhance the experience for all involved. Before the Requiem the choir will sing the beautiful motet
by Lassus, ‘Justorum animae in manu Dei sunt’ (The souls of the just are in God’s hands) and there will be readings of war poetry. This
concert in the beautiful surroundings of Bolton Priory will add to local commemorations of the centenary of the Armistice. It is a tribute to
all who have died in wars or who have been wounded, impoverished or displaced by conflicts throughout the world.
Tickets cost £10, under 16 and war veterans are free. Tickets can be bought from choir members, at the door on the day of the concert or may be reserved via our website:
