Harrow Choral Society’s 100-strong choir will perform Mozart’s Requiem and Vaughan Williams’s dramatic cantata, Dona Nobis Pacem.

“These are choral masterpieces in their own right but in the year which sees the centenary of the end of the First World War we hope that they also represent a fitting tribute to those who fought and died in the conflict,” said HCS Chairman Peter Miller. Mozart’s sublime Requiem, composed in 1791, was one of his last works and remained unfinished at his death. Vaughan Williams’s Dona Nobis Pacem dates from 1936 when war threatened yet again and the cantata, a plea for peace in anxious times, draws on the composer’s own experience of the Great War.

The choir will be conducted by Music Director Simon Williams and accompanied by the Aeolian Sinfonia with Julie Bale, leader of HCS’s Singing for Starters training choir, as soprano soloist. Other soloists will be Samantha Price (Mezzo Soprano), James Geer (Tenor) and Ross Ramgobin (Baritone).

HCS recently rounded off a busy year with its popular Christmas Concert at Harrow School Speech Room on 16th December. “This year we were delighted to welcome actor Edward Fox as our celebrity guest reader and other special guests included the Mayor of Harrow and composer Cecilia McDowall whose carol cantata “A Winter’s Night” we sang,” said Peter Miller. Two days later, in response to an invitation from The Castle pub on Harrow Hill, the choir led an evening of carol singing there which raised an astonishing £730 for St Luke’s Hospice. HCS has strong links with St Luke’s and regularly participates in the Voices for Hospices event at Harrow School Speech Room along with other local choirs.
