Scholars Baroque present Faure's Requiem with Dr Indra Hughes.
IN FOR THE RIDE OF YOUR LIFE!
Be swept away by the breathtaking, ponderous and extraordinarily beautiful soundscape of Gabriel Faure’s original intimate “impressionistic” work so far removed from the most often performed version with full orchestra.
Beginning with one single heavy chord from master organist Dr Indra Hughes, voices enter with a quiet mysticism, an air of
reverence that breathes for you with a richness that transports you on the wings of this chamber choir and organist weaving magic.
Gabriel Faure’s “Requiem” is like nothing you have experienced before!
After your recovery time during a brief interval Indra Hughes accompanies the voices in a charming setting of Haydn’s “Salve
Regina”, the rich texture moving into joyous dance before a slow/fast triumphant conclusion and maybe, just maybe you recover
from Faure’s “Requiem” to be able to drive home!
