VERDI’S REQUIEM PERFORMED BY MONTEVERDI CHOIR AND ORCHESTRAS AT WESTMINSTER CATHEDRAL IN SUPPORT OF CANCER RESEARCH UK



On his former colleague Richard Fitzgerald John Eliot Gardiner said:
‘Richard was one of the most consistently level-headed, collegial and decent human beings you could ever wish to encounter. As stage manager of the Monteverdi Choir and its twin orchestras for fifteen years Richard gave loyal and dedicated service, always with good grace, tolerance and exemplary professionalism’

Claire Cullen, Cancer Research UK’s local fundraising manager for London said:

‘Monteverdi Choir & Orchestras is an absolutely inspiring organisation and we can’t thank them enough for their commitment to helping Cancer Research UK beat cancer sooner. It’s going to be a fantastic evening. One in two people in the UK will be diagnosed with cancer at some stage in their lives, but the good news is more people are surviving the disease now than ever before. Cancer survival in the UK has doubled since the early 1970s and Cancer Research UK’s work has been at the heart of that progress. However, we have only been able to achieve this thanks to the dedication and generosity of volunteers and supporters like MCO – without whom we would not be able to fund outstanding scientists, doctors and nurses.’
