Beautiful Music, Beautiful Venue - Requiem by Fauré
Opportunity to get in touch with divine! In his seven-section Requiem, the French composer Gabriel Fauré distilled some of the most beautiful melodies he ever composed.
The Requiem owes its roots to Christian faith and traditionally it is a prayerful lament for the dead. Fauré’s Requiem was altogether different, since he had no clear religious beliefs - by contrast, he was very much a doubter. Of all seven sections, the Pie Jesu, Agnus Dei and In Paradisum emerge as the most glorious, filled with rich, soulful melodies. The work garnered the praise of many other composers – not least Camille Saint-Saëns, who thought it divine. It was performed at Fauré’s own funeral in Protected content .
