Gabriel Fauré’s Requiem is one of the most cherished of all choral works.

Of the Requiem, Fauré wrote “Everything I managed to entertain by way of religious illusion I put into my Requiem, which moreover is dominated from beginning to end by a very human feeling of faith in eternal rest.”

Marked by its gently luminous scoring and melodic beauty, Faure’s Requiem has been a favourite of audiences since its first performance in 1888.

This all-French programme will also feature Fauré’s Cantique de Jean Racine, Francis Poulenc’s sparkling Mass in G and a rare performance of Daniel-Lesur’s Le Cantique des Cantiques.

We are delighted to present this work with soloists bass-baritone Nicholas Dinopoulos and soprano Erika Tandiono.

Don’t miss the chance to hear these treasures of the French choral repertoire.
