Requiem

G. Fauré
Requiem
60 Minutes.

“From the beginning to the end, an extremely human sense of trust in eternal peace dominates the composition”, – Gabriel Faure wrote about his Requiem.

Requiem, as a Mass for the Dead, in the works of many composers, from W.A. Mozart to G. Verdi, was the conceptualization of tragedy, fear of death and repentance before the Last Judgment.

However, the French composer of the 19-20th centuries Gabriel Fauré in his Requiem focused on different states of the human soul, which comes to the final and infinite judgment, hoping for eternal rest and consolation.

No wonder that the final and the most famous movement of Requiem In Paradisum is based on “In paradisum deducant angeli” (May angels lead you to paradise), taken from the Order of Burial.

Requiem in D minor, Op. 48 by G. Faure consists of seven movements and is scored for soprano and baritone soloists, mixed choir, orchestra and organ:

  1. Introit et Kyrie

  2. Offertory

  3. Sanctus

  4. Pie Jesu

  5. Agnus Dei

  6. Libera me

  7. In Paradisum

Requiem is one of the most famous compositions of G. Faure and the movements “Pie Jesu”, “Agnus Dei” and “In Paradisum” are full of unforgettable beautiful melodies. There are several author’s editions of the work, including scores for chamber and symphony orchestra.

For the first time soloists, choir and orchestra of Lviv National Opera are presenting Requiem in Holy Week. Requiem of G. Faure is a real pleasure for listeners who are looking for consolation, inspiration and time for reflections.
