The Royal Choral Society has been performing the choral masterpieces ever since its formation for the opening of the Royal Albert Hall in 1871, including the UK premières of Verdi’s Requiem in 1875, and Dvorak’s Stabat Mater in 1884, both concerts conducted by their composers. The St John Passion was first performed in the UK 150 years ago in 1872 under the baton of Royal Choral Society conductor Sir Joseph Barnby.
