Poster image for BSO Voices: Requiem 2020 featuring the world as a tree


Portsmouth Cathedral hosts a requiem of reflection on a year of great upheaval, on events that resounded around the world and when climate change really came to the fore.

Written for chorus and four soloists plus orchestra, Requiem 2020 is a thrilling work based around the traditional religious liturgy, but with added lyrics sourced from quotations by Martin Luther King Jnr, JK Rowling, Khalil Gibran and Joaquin Phoenix, as well as the last words by George Floyd – "I can't breathe!"

Tickets are limited so book early. All seats are unreserved in each seating area. Some seats in the Nave and Crossing areas have slighthly restricted views due to pillars. All seats in the Quire have limited view of the performance area, but the sound is excellent and the concert will be shown on screens.

The concert is being livestreamed for webcast simultaneously and will be avaiable to watch on demand for 30 days afterwards.
