The Sunshine Coast Choral Society will be performing Sir Karl Jenkins “Requiem” under the baton of Adrian King, with the Choral Society Chamber Orchestra. ‘Requiem’ is a fine and very beautiful requiem mass first performed in 2005, which is being performed in remembrance, on the centenary of the end of World War II in 1918.
This ‘Requiem’ is distinguished from other requiem masses, in that, whilst the traditional formats are followed, they are interspersed with a number of very lovely settings of Japanese death poems in the forms of haiku, which are overlaid above a continuance of the Latin mass.
This ‘must-hear’ performance will be presented at the Gregson and Weight Chapel, Wises Road, Buderim on Sunday, 22nd April 2018, commencing at 2.00 pm.
