Mozart Requiem

Bach Violin Concerto No 1 in A minor BWV 1041

Bach Motet ‘Singet dem Herrn ein neues Lied’ BWV 225

Music for Everyone’s specialist chamber choir invites you to this intimate performance of Mozart’s famous Requiem, on of the most exquisite and emotionally engaging classics of the choral repertoire. It is complemented by a sunny Bach violin concerto and his choral motet ‘Singet’, celebrating the sheer joy of music.

The Music

Come and experience the beauty and drama of Mozart’s extraordinary Requiem in the glorious acoustic of St Barnabas Cathedral, Nottingham. Be uplifted by the loveliness of Bach’s Violin Concerto in A minor, distilled in the solo playing of Helen Tonge, and the richness and exuberance of Bach’s double-choir motet, Singet dem Herrn ein neues Lied.

What better pairing can there be than Bach and Mozart – two musical giants who transcend their own time to move and excite us today.

The Venue

The sumptuous Gothic interior of St Barnabas Cathedral, the work of Augustus Pugin, one of the architects of the Houses of Parliament, is a hidden gem in the heart of the city.

The Cathedral is easy to find – located on the corner of Derby Road and North Circus Street, facing Nottingham’s Albert Hall. The Cathedral is approx. 5 mins away from the Theatre Royal tram stop, there is a bus stop outside the front door plus plenty of on-street parking and car parks close by.


Spring is finally in the air!! After all the storms and wild weather of February, it finally feels like the warmer weather, longer days and spring flowers are on their way. This week many of us may well be flipping pancakes in a frenzy before choosing to be somewhat more virtuous for Lent. One thing we’re certainly not giving up at MfE is putting on fabulous concerts for your entertainment and delight, and this coming weekend is no exception…

On Saturday 5th March, the Nottingham Chamber Singers (formerly EOES) will be performing a programme of music to soothe your senses, with a springtime theme of reflection, remembrance and renewal. The choir will be joined by an eclectic mix of instrumentalists for their performance of the Rutter Requiem, Brahms Four songs for upper voices, Schumann’s Six songs for lower voices, and local composer Guy Turner’s Songs and legends of Robin Hood. We will also feature two contemporary settings of music set to the texts of Lord Byron, who incidentally is buried in the graveyard of the parish church of Hucknall where the concert is taking place. It promises to be a romantic feast for the senses, we hope you can join us… book your tickets now! 7.30pm concert at St Mary Magdalene Church, Hucknall.

Book tickets online (also available on the door but we do recommend booking in advance!): https://www.music-for-everyone.org/ncs-concert-booking-page/

Happy Pancake Day for tomorrow! How do you like yours? Plain, sweet or savoury?

Here are some musical pancake inspirations if you’re feeling up to a challenge…

  • In New Orleans and other parts of the world people will be celebrating Mardi-Gras with Carnival on 1st March, so maybe put this wonderful toe-tapping tune on and have a dance around your kitchen whilst you’re flipping your pancakes. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=na5sXo0Oqhw

Have a good week!

Your friends at MfE.
