One of the finest choirs in the South-West performs a work that received a thunderous standing ovation at its recent premiere in Truro. A Secular Requiem deals with the subject of death, through a magnificent libretto compiled from the words of some of our greatest poets, in music that is by turns searching, anguished, haunting, frenzied, funny and heart breaking, but concludes in a blaze of optimism.

The work is preceded by Richard Strauss’ ravishing Four Last Songs.

‘Russell Pascoe’s Requiem was outstandingly beautiful and I wish it could be heard in concert halls and churches up and down the land.’ (Daily Mail)

‘Sarah Fox’s Four Last Songs was like one of those perfect sunsets which long remain in the memory.’ (West Briton)
