Fauré Requiem, Apr 19
Written in the late 1880’s, the work is scored for mixed chorus, soprano and baritone soloists, orchestra, and organ, and offers a uniquely serene view of death in stark contrast to the dark solemnity that defines other Requiem settings. Fauré describes his Requiem as follows:
“It has been said that my Requiem does not express the fear of death, and someone has called it a “lullaby” of death. But it is thus that I see death: as a happy deliverance, an aspiration towards happiness above rather than as a painful experience.”
