      Vasari Singers 11th November, St Martin in the Fields, London 7.30pm

      Requiem for Remembrance

      Allegri: Miserere
      Tavener: Song for Athene
      Jackson: Requiem – WORLD PREMIERE
      Scarlatti: Stabat Mater

      Vasari Singers, regarded as "One of the Worlds finest choirs"
      (Musicweb International) will line up at St Martin in the Fields on
      11th November for a night of the finest choral music on Remembrance
      Day. The highlight of the concert is the World Premiere of a
      fantastic new choral Requiem, commissioned by the choir, by leading
      British composer Gabriel Jackson.

      Vasari's Music Director Jeremy Backhouse: "Gabriel Jackson is one of
      the outstanding composers working in Britain today. He is becoming
      increasingly well known for his sacred choral music which has
      incredible depth and intensity. We are delighted to be able to work
      with Gabriel on this major new choral work."

      The whole programme presents a moving combination of accompanying
      works, including the atmospheric Miserere by Allegri (famous for its
      repeated top soprano Cs), John Tavener's Song for Athene (sung at
      Princess Diana's funeral), Herbert Howells's Take him, earth, for
      cherishing, (written for the memory of President JF Kennedy), and
      Scarlatti's masterwork Stabat Mater.

      The concert starts at 7.30pm, tickets priced from just £8-18 with
      concessions, available from the box office www.smitf.org or by
      telephone 020 7766 1100. Tickets are available now so don't miss out.
