Waverley Singers is joining forces with Romsey Choral Society for this performance of Verdi's towering masterpiece, the Messa da Requiem
Famously described as 'an opera in all but name', it's conceived on a  huge scale, with four soloists, large orchestra including an oversized bass drum, offstage brass fanfares.  It's simply high drama from start to finish, an extraordinarily dramatic and powerful work.
The performance takes place in Guildford Cathedral on Saturday 27th January, conducted by Waverley Singers' Director of Music, Richard Pearce.  Both concerts feature soloists from the Josephine Baker Trust.
Tickets are now available from all Waverley Singers members, online at,  and will soon be on sale at Strutt & Parker, Farnham, and Newbury Building Society, Alton. Please note that seats are unnumbered and available from a general allocation for each section. Waverley Singers Patrons may request specific seating locations; to qualify, their bookings must be made directly with the Patrons' Secretary.  

The Cathedral Refectory will be available for pre–concert supper and dinners on the evening of the Concert between 5.00pm and  7.00pm for concert ticket holders, orchestra and choir members, etc.  Refectory bookings:  01483 563841
