As summer beckons, there’s warmth and contemplation in abundance as the Royal Choral Society makes its Queen Elizabeth Hall debut with a programme of well loved music by Fauré, Vaughan Williams and Copland

Alongside Fauré’s Cantique de Jean Racine and his well-loved Requiem – performed this year to mark the centenary of the composer’s death – the choir sings An Oxford Elegy, Vaughan Williams’s poignant tapestry of music interweaved with Matthew Arnold’s poetry.

The Royal Choral Society is accompanied by the London Mozart Players who perform Copland’s Appalachian Spring, providing an upbeat complement to the choral music.

The Royal Choral Society, one of Britain's largest symphonic choirs, recently celebrated its 150th anniversary. The choir has been performing choral masterpieces ever since its formation for the opening of the Royal Albert Hall in 1871, including the UK premiere of Verdi's Requiem in 1875, conducted by Verdi himself.
