Info for Berlioz: Requiem (Grande Messe des morts)



Marking the 150th anniversary of Berlioz’s death, this performance of the mighty Requiem or Grande Messe des Morts - took place in St Paul’s Cathedral, London, in March 2019. Conducted by John Nelson, it involved over 300 musicians, including tenor Michael Spyres. As Nelson said: “Every measure resonates deeply with me and I feel there is sincerity, even in the great moments of bombast.” The Times wrote: “The surpassing virtue of this performance … was that both aspects, the spine-shakingly spectacular and the heart-rendingly haunting, were allowed to make their impact.

Berlioz’s Requiem was written in 1830 for the French soldiers killed in war, and the composer treasured the work, declaring: “If I were threatened with the destruction of the whole of my works save one, I should crave mercy for the Messe des morts.”
