Venue: Sandford Church
Our choir will join that of Sandford, St. Philip’s for a performance of Fauré’s Requiem in D minor, Op. 48. Fauré’s work sets a selection of the traditional texts from the Mass for the Dead, but unlike many settings (notably those of Mozart and Verdi), Fauré dwells not on images of hell and judgement, but rather on heaven and consolation.
This work, which will be performed between All Saints (1 November) and Remembrance Sunday (10 November), is especially appropriate for the season of remembrance.
A retiring collection will be made in aid of the Alice Leahy Trust to support those affected by homelessness.
