Legacy Chorale to perform Faure’s ‘Requiem’
The Legacy Chorale of Greater Minnesota will perform “Requiem, Op. 48” by Gabriel Faure at 7 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 21, at the free event at the Gichi-Ziibi Center for the Art at Brainerd High School.
Fauré composed his “Requiem” in D minor, Op. 48, between 1887 and 1890. The choral-orchestral setting of the shortened Catholic Mass for the Dead in Latin is the best-known of his large works. Its focus is on eternal rest and consolation.
He composed the work in the late 1880s and revised it in the 1890s, finishing it in 1900.
Free-will donations will accepted at the door and/or the chorale’s website at https://legacychorale.org/contribute.
