BBC Singers: Mozart
From Milton Court in London, a concert celebrating Mozart, with soloists joining the BBC Singers and St James's Baroque conducted by David Hill in the Litaniae and the Requiem.
BBC Singers and their Chief Conductor, David Hill, celebrate one of the greatest of all composers, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, with two choral works from either end of his short life. The Litaniae was composed in Salzburg when he was 20, and the Requiem, a work that seems to look far into the future, was left unfinished. Recorded in Milton Court in London, the BBC Singers are joined by St James' Baroque and soloists Lauren Fagan, Catherine Hopper, Ben Johnson and David Stout.
