The Colorado Chorale will present a virtual performance of Gabriel Faure’s Requiem in June.
“We chose this piece to honor the memory of all those who have died during covid, and to comfort their families and friends,” explained Kevin Padworski, the Chorale’s Artistic Director.
Faure’s Requiem, a mass for the dead, may be unique in its lyrical and peaceful passages. Faure saw death as a “happy deliverance, an aspiration towards happiness above, rather than as a painful experience.”
He called his Requiem a “lullaby of death,” and 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.”
We hope you will join us for this lovely, reflective concert offered for peace and renewal.
