Requiem, Op. 48, Gabriel Fauré
The Choirs of Christ Church Raleigh
David Jernigan, Director
Gabriel Fauré’s Requiem, Op. 48, is one of the most frequently performed works in all of classical music. Fauré wrote “that I see death…as an aspiration towards happiness above, rather than as a painful experience,” and so his Requiem is a musical expression of faith in the delights of eternal rest. The Christ Church Choirs offer this performance in memory of all from our parish who have died.
Free and open to the public
