​The performance will be conducted by Allan Smith, Musical Director to Louth Choral Society, and the Choir is delighted to welcome the Lincolnshire Chamber Orchestra.

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756–1791) composed part of this Requiem Mass in Vienna in late 1791. He came to believe that he was writing the Requiem for his own funeral, however it was unfinished at his death. It was later completed in 1792 by Franz Xaver Süssmayr.
