Schütz Magnificat (Uppsala), SWV 468
Handel Excerpts from Messiah
Mozart Requiem, K. 626

The City Choir of Washington concludes its twelfth season with one of the most popular choral works ever written: Mozart’s immortal Requiem. Maestro Shafer invites you to explore the baroque influences that shaped Mozart’s masterpiece, including excerpts from Handel’s Messiah, and the Uppsala Magnificat by German composer Heinrich Schütz. Schütz studied in Venice and took their poly-choral practices back to Northern Germany. It is a thrilling and rarely-heard piece for three choirs and orchestra.
