This community performance to commemorate the centenary of Armistice Day will be the musical highlight of the Warwick Poppies tribute. Readings of World War I poetry will be interleaved with the music to explore the themes of prayer, anguish and salvation that permeate Duruflé’s Requiem.
Some of Warwick’s finest musicians combine forces to form the Warwick Poppies Chorus and Foundation Poppies Ensemble in this collaborative presentation of Duruflé’s masterpiece, under the baton of Alex Laing.
The Foundation Chamber Choir, Da Capo Chamber Choir (run by a KHS parent) and the Gentlemen of St Mary’s Choir form the Chorus, while the Poppies Ensemble comprises senior pupils and professionals from the Warwick Foundation schools.
