Britten War Requiem in King's College Chapel
The Choirs of Jesus College are taking part in Benjamin Britten's War Requiem, together with six other Cambridge University choirs and orchestras, at King's College Chapel. Conducted by Graham Ross, Director of Music at Clare College.
Calling upon a symphony orchestra, a chamber ensemble, a large-scale choir, a boys’ choir, and three soloists, which only unify in the final minutes of the piece, the War Requiem ends at rest with a pleading sense of hope after vividly reminding us of the beautiful terrors of war and loss. Tickets are available here.
