Surrender to the scale of these enormous choral works performed by members of The University of Sheffield Singers' Society conducted by Musical Director Peter Taylor.
Left unfinished after the composer's death, Mozart's Requiem was completed by Franz Xaver Süssmayr to fulfill the anonymously delivered comission by austrian Count Franz Von Walsegg.
Stravinsky composed his Symphony of Psalms in the years between the two World Wars, and they are one of the first musical expressions of his re-discovered Christian faith. The work has proved one of the composer's most successful and influential pieces.
"It is not a symphony in which I have included Psalms to be sung. On the contrary, it is the singing of the Psalms that I am symphonizing.” - Stravinsky.
SingSoc is one of the biggest societies at the University of Sheffield and is open to all - undergraduates, postgraduates, staff, and international/Erasmus/ semester abroad students, as well as local Sheffield residents.
Founded in 1998, SingSoc has grown to have well over 150 singers, in 3 choirs led by 3 musical directors. They cover a wide range of music from big choral works to more modern pieces, both classical and popular.
