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.

Pre-concert talk - 3:15 pm
