Mozart’s Requiem and Holst’s Hymn of Jesus.
What a feast of music! On Sunday December 1st at 8.00p.m. in St. Augustine’s Church, Washington Street, East Cork Choral Society will perform Mozart’s final masterpiece, his Requiem. This will be followed by Holst’s very moving and dramatic ‘ Hymn of Jesus’ and the Advent anthem ‘Turn back O man’ also by Holst.
As ever, the East Cork Orchestra, leader, Eithne Willis, will accompany the performance and Gemma Magner, Sarah Luttrell, Ciaran Fennelly and Robert Kennedy are the soloists. Colin Nicholls will conduct, as he has for the past 36 years.
