Faure and Poulenc

The first compete performance of Gabriel Faure's Requiem Op 48 (which he began writing in 1885) with organ and chamber orchestra took place in 1893, but the version with which we are most familiar is that of 1900, where the texture was thickened by a larger orchestra, probably at the behest of the publishers. Our Spring Concert allows choir and audience alike to hear the limpid, luminous qualities of the original version. This will be paired with Poulenc's darkly beautiful Four Penitential Motets (1939), which the choir last performed in 2010.

with Gillian Wilson (soprano) and Colin Baldy (Baritone)
