Fauré once said, "Everything I managed to entertain by way of religious illusion I put into my Requiem, which moreover is dominated from beginning to end by a very human feeling of faith in eternal rest."

Some of the most beautiful music in the choral repertoire is to be found in the pages of Fauré's score.

Introduced by Brian Kay.
