19:30 Berlioz’s Grande messe des morts
20:55 Event ends

Of all the Requiems, Berlioz’s epic Grande messe des morts is among the largest. It involves a gargantuan ensemble, including three choirs and colossal brass, and unleashes an incredible range of expression with masterful theatricality.

This breath-taking, roof-raising masterwork was written to commemorate the fallen of the 1830 Revolution, and the BBC SO perform it in the similarly epic Royal Albert Hall with the massed choral forces of the BBC Symphony and Crouch End Festival Choruses, the London Philharmonic Choir, tenor Toby Spence and conductor Franois-Xavier Roth on Remembrance Sunday. Join us for an unmissable performance of this extraordinary work.

Please note that tenor Toby Spence is performing in place of the originally advertised Maximilian Schmitt.
