Written between 1887 and 1890, Gabriel Fauré's Requiem is among the best-loved pieces in the chorale 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 requiems. 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.
- On 2/23/19, the concert will be held at First United Methodist Church in Fort Collins, CO.
- On 2/24/19, the concert will be held at Seventh Day Adventist Church in Campion, CO.
Both these beautiful churches have wonderful acoustics. We look forward to singing there!
