M is for MozartA Requiem for Remembrance

All Saints' Church
Priory Terrace, Royal Leamington Spa CV31 1AA

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart Requiem
Gregorio Allegri Miserere mei, Deus
José Maurício Nunes Garcia Miserere mei, Deus
Marianna Martines Miserere mei, Deus

Our Autumn concert will feature Mozart’s powerful Requiem, and three deeply moving settings of Miserere mei, Deus - the most famous by Gregorio Allegri, the others by Brazilian composer José Maurício Nunes Garcia and Mozart’s friend and contemporary Marianna Martines.

All three of these settings of Psalm 51 are linked to Mozart in some way: Allegri's setting was famously (although possibly apocryphally) written down from memory by Mozart after he heard it once in the Sistine Chapel, where the score was kept under lock and key. Maurício Nunes Garcia, a Brazilian composer, studied the music of Mozart from scores brought from Europe, and conducted the first performance of the Requiem in Brazil. And Marianna Martines, a pupil of Haydn, regularly played piano duets with Mozart!
