Songs of the Traveller

The season will close with Songs of the Traveller, a focus on the human condition as we journey through this life and to the next. At the heart of this concert will be Gabriel Fauré’s enduring Requiem. Fauré’s choral masterpiece of the late nineteenth century is unique among Romantic Requiem settings in that it does not focus on the drama of the “Dies irae” text. Rather, Faure chooses to celebrate the life of the deceased while offering comfort and hope for the sojourners who remain on earth.
