Mozart's Second Requiem (K.878) is being sung at the Cathedral Basilica of St. George at Coverley (pronounced Cowley) for the laying-to-rest of the monarch. Above choir and orchestra soars the faultless boy soprano voice of Hubert Anvil. It is a once-in-a-century talent. Althoughhe cannot yet know it, today's performance before a brilliant internationa l congregation - including two emissaries of the Holy Office - will alter his destiny but save his voice if certain of his elders have their way. In the world-as-we-know-it the last such castrato died in 1922, but this is another world altogether, spared the Reformation back in the sixteenth centurywhen Martin Luther became Pope. As Hubert is made aware of what may be in store for him, some unsuspected allies, including his father's not-so-celibate chaplain and the New Englander ambassador spring up. Around him swirls a whirlpool of piety, menace, terror, and passion - a vortex from which no reader can or will escape until the final resolution." - from the dj.

Peter trapped in guilt and Muriel, his genial, venomous English wife, even Sophie, once 'the surest thing between Bridgend and Carmarthen town'.
