About the event

Faure’s Requiem, while a standard in the choral canon, is written with a different attitude toward the subject matter. Faure himself served as a church musician in many capacities, but was internally never religious. Thus, many have called this Requiem a lullaby of death rather than a reflection of the fear of judgment. With this in mind, I have chosen more of Faure’s works which both identify his church work and attitude toward death. We begin and end however  with two modern works by Craig Courtney and Rollo Dilworth which reflect on our mortality in different ways as both joyous and contemplative.
