  1. Dettingen Te Deum - George Frideric Handel
  2. Requiem Mass in D minor K 626 - Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

Handel’s Dettingen Te Deum, was commissioned in 1743 to celebrate the victory of the British army and its allies, under the command of King George II, over the French army at the Battle of Dettingen. Handel has created solos and choruses of a brilliant, martial character, with only slight hints of Messiah, which we can enjoy today as songs of praise. The triumphant trumpeting is as exciting and fresh today as when first written.

Mozart’s Requiem is firmly established as one of Mozart’s best known works and a favourite Requiem for singers and audiences worldwide. He writes in fear, anger and sublimity with incredibly moving musical language that never fails to take the breath away. Life after death is not a complete certainty in his mind, but there is a defiance amidst the sorrow.
