Fauré: Requiem

Fauré’s reasons for composing his Requiem are unclear, but do not appear to have had anything to do with the death of his parents in the mid-1880s. He composed the work in the late 1880s and revised it in the 1890s, finalizing it in 1900. A short Requiem, lasting only 35 minutes, it is written for orchestra, organ, mixed chorus and two soloists, soprano and baritone, and performed in Latin. It consists of seven movements, most famous is the central soprano aria “Pie Jesu.”
