Lucis Choir performs Fauré Requiem
Fauré Requiem and Cantique de Jean Racine
In this centenary year of the death of Gabriel Fauré, Lucis mark their 10th anniversary with a programme spearheaded by two of the composer's most beloved choral works, the Requiem and Cantique de Jean Racine, as well as an organ arrangement of his Pavane.
The programme starts with Lili Boulanger’s Pour les funérailles d'un soldat followed by Faure’s Pavane, arranged for organ. The first half also includes de Severac’s Tantum ergo, Faure’s Cantique de Jean Racine and In my Father’s house by Stopford.
The concert concludes with Faure’s Requiem in the arrangement for violin, cello, harp and organ.
