Book Description

Among the most widely performed choral works in the repertoire, the Faure "Requiem" is generally considered the greatest achievement of its highly influential French composer. Written in memory of Faure's father, the work was first performed at La Madeleine in 1888. Although it did not attain immediate popularity, the "Requiem"'s clarity, balance, serenity, and ethereal beauty eventually won it many admirers. Critics have been especially impressed by the way in which the score conveys great emotional power with scrupulous economy of means. Today, Faure's "Requiem" enjoys enormous popularity with concert-goers and lovers of sacred music all over the world.Now you can enjoy the complete masterpiece in this attractive, inexpensive volume, reprinted from an authoritative French edition. It offers musicians and all music lovers an opportunity to study and appreciate Faure's uncommon mastery of the choral genre."
