Hoping in Darkness Concert: Faure Requiem and Distler Totentanz

October 18, 2014 - News & Events

This beautiful choral-orchestral setting of the Roman Catholic Mass for the Dead is the best known of Faure’s large works, and reflects his hopeful interpretation of death. Faure himself said of his work, “It has been said that my Requiem does not express the fear of death and someone has called it a lullaby of death. But it is thus that I see death: as a happy deliverance, an aspiration towards happiness above, rather than as a painful experience.”
