Alan Seeger: Instrument of Destiny, Oratorio by Patrick Zimmerli
French Masters, Cathedral Choir and Ensemble 1047
The Cathedral Choir and Ensemble 1047 perform the 1893 version of Gabriel Fauré Requiem, which includes the Libera me and Offertoire, yet is still performed by chamber ensemble of violas, celli, bass, harp, horns and timpani with organ. The work is a dramatic break from tradition: rather than dwelling on the operatic terrors of the Last Judgment, Fauré chose instead to focus on a message of consolation and hope. The Requiem is paired with Poulenc’s deeply spiritual Litanies à la Vierge noire and Quatre petites prières de saint François d’Assise.
