Bury Bach Choir: Fauré Requiem
Sat 6 Nov, 7.30pm
Fauré Requiem, with selected choral classics, including music by Mozart and Elgar.
In this ‘Welcome Back’ concert, the Bury Bach Choir performs a mixed programme of sacred and secular music spanning 500 years, from the leading Tudor composer Thomas Tallis, through works by Mozart, Bruckner and Elgar, right up to the present day with music by Tavener and James MacMillan.
The main work is Fauré’s Requiem, an intimate and gentle response to the Latin Mass quite unlike those of Berlioz or Verdi. Consolation in bereavement is the composer’s goal in what has become his most popular work.
