Dessoff Choirs: Fauré Requiem

  • Union Theological Seminary 3041 Broadway New York, NY, 10027 United States (map)

One of my favorite harp parts! The Dessoff Choirs sings Gabriel Fauré’s Requiem in the original 1893 version with orchestra and soprano and baritone soloists. Considered to be the composer’s masterpiece, the setting is well-balanced with moments of sensitive reflection and fiery drama. The Requiem is complemented by Ich lasse dich nicht, a motet attributed to J.S. Bach, and William Schuman’s evocative Prelude for Voices.
