The requiem has long been a popular form among composers, and celebrated practitioners of the genre include Mozart, Verdi, Brahms, Berlioz, and Britten. Unlike those of his fellow composers, Fauré's Requiem contains no Sturm und Drang, no thundering crescendos or rallying cries to the deceased. Rather, it's a gentle, contemplative work, more of a meditation on transience than an exhortation. It contains most of the form's familiar elements, including mixed chorus and soloists (in this instance baritone Jonathan Nussman and soprano Priti Gandhi), but they are employed in service of an effect that is uniquely Fauré's own. This piece has steadily gained in popularity and the final section, "In Paradisum," is familiar to many from its use in several films, television programs, and commercials. Recorded on 06/10/2018.
