FAURÉ Requiem

Gregory Batsleer Chorus Director

A hushed prayer for the departed, and a consoling embrace for those left behind: Fauré’s achingly beautiful Requiem has comforted and inspired generations.

Join outstanding British baritone Roderick Williams and conductor Andrew Manze as they explore Fauré’s poignant visions of paradise, joined by the fine voices of the SCO Chorus. Williams also embarks on the profound spiritual journey of Vaughan Williams’s Five Mystical Songs, while Ruth Gipps, a student of his, offers a pastoral idyll from the Lake District.

Berlioz’s bracing Beatrice and Benedict Overture kicks off the concert with sunny Shakespearean optimism.
