Mozart's Requiem by Candlelight
  • Edinburgh Fringe

Described as the sublimest achievement that the modern period has contributed to the church, there can be few more befitting settings in which to experience the heart-wrenching beauty of Mozarts Requiem than by candlelight in the historic St Giles' Cathedral. The story of its creation (as sensationalised by the Oscar-winning Amadeus) is as intriguing as this, his final masterpiece, is enigmatic. The National Youth Choir of Scotland reprises its critically acclaimed performance of this dark yet resplendent choral work for the first time since the BBC Proms in 2014.
