Holy Trinity, Sloane Square
Illuminare Choir is joined by renowned organist Colin Walsh in this performance of Fauré‘s Requiem, presented alongside two other favourites of the French repertoire – Vierne’s dramatic Messe solennelle and Durufle’s reflective Quatre motets sur des thèmes grégoriens.
Illuminare is a chamber choir comprising 20 of London’s finest singers. The choir was founded by Jeremy Cole in 2012, for a concert in Trinity College Chapel, Cambridge, where they performed several successful concerts before moving to be based in London. Past performances have included Bach’s St John Passion and Cantata BWV 21, as well as Monteverdi’s Vespers of 1610 in a concert with the choristers of Fulham Prep School and members of His Majestys Sagbutts and Cornetts.
