Our Next Concert

Gossec’s Messe des morts

The Choir’s 2019 concert season opens with Gossec’s groundbreaking Messe des morts which made him famous overnight. This inventive work was truly ahead of its time, and is said to have influenced both Mozart’s and Berlioz’ Requiems. Who had ever thought to use a ‘distant wind orchestra’ in a Requiem before? Born in a small village in what is now Beligium, Gossec spent all of his successful musical career in Paris.

The performance will be conducted by our distinguished music director, Christopher Bowen OAM.

 WHEN: 3pm Sunday, 5 May 2019

WHERE: University of Sydney Great Hall
