Music has a unique power to console and uplift, and this concert combines words and music that offer different perspectives on darkness and light, death and life, and our shared hope for healing.

In the first half, we present a programme of reflective chamber music guaranteed to soothe the soul. After the interval Gabriel Fauré’s Requiem – with its focus on eternal rest and consolation – completes the programme.
