BSO Voices community choir sings world premiere to mark year of global change

Requiem 2020 receives its world premiere in Portsmouth Cathedral on Saturday 21 May.

The hour-long choral work explores the prominent themes of 2020, from the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic to the increased prominence of human rights movements and climate change.

Written by composer Teresa Barlow, the work is performed by the BSO Voices community choir and members of the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra under the baton of conductor Pete Harrison.

From Covid-19 performed as a morse code cypher to a setting of words by Greta Thunberg on environmental change, Requiem 2020 is set to mark a year unlike any other.
