The enormous forces of Berlioz’s Grande messe des morts – including extended orchestra, four off-stage brass ensembles, ten pairs of timpani and a massed choir – make hearing it a rare and unforgettable experience. Add the exceptional acoustic of Gloucester Cathedral and one of the country’s finest choral directors, Adrian Partington, and it becomes unmissable. Berlioz’s thrilling masterpiece alternates from thundering drama to hushed intimacy.
