Written between 1887 and 1890, Gabriel Fauré’s Requiem is among the best-loved pieces in the choral repertoire. For these concerts we will perform the piece in its original version, composed for low strings, organ, brass and solo violin. The richness of this instrumentation is stunning, and it lends extra warmth to this most comforting of requiem masses. Fauré’s talent as a composer of art song is quite evident in the long, mellifluous lines. As a result, his Requiem remains a favorite for choral singers the world over and is equally popular among audiences both young and old.
