Fauré Requiem

The London Choral Sinfonia present a foray into French music, both sacred and secular. Starting in Paris at Notre Dame Cathedral with Pierre Cochereau’s grand improvised Gigue, we travel to the Auvergne to hear six of Joseph Canteloube’s folk song arrangements in a pared-down format for soprano and piano.

 

Following a series of choral arrangements of favourite mélodies by Fauré, Debussy, Saint-Saëns and Hahn, we will return to Paris to perform Fauré’s incomparable Requiem, scored for chamber forces.
