Mozart's Requiem at St Cuthbert's, Wells

Saturday evening we were at St. Cuthbert's, Wells to hear the Mozart Requiem and Poulenc's Quatre Motets pour un temps de Penitence, with the Beaumont Singers and Orchestra conducted by Peter Kingston. Here was the scene in the church just before the Mozart piece started.

There's something about a live performance which no listening to MP3 files can match. The Mozart Requiem is extraordinarily controversial by the way, as is described here.
