  1. Requiem (Officium defunctorum) a 6 - Tomás Luis de Victoria
  2. Songs of Farewell - Sir Charles Hubert Hastings Parry

For our final concerts of the season, we turn to the last great pieces of two very different composers.

The Spanish renaissance composer Victoria’s Requiem Mass, written at the end of the Siglo de Oro (the Spanish Golden Age) is often regarded as a funeral for a departing era, and contrasts beautifully with the work of the English composer Hubert Parry.

Written during the First World War, Parry’s six Songs of Farewell can be seen as the pinnacle of his choral compositions, completed in the last year of his life.

The movements of the two works are interspersed to provide a unique listening experience
