Faure Requiem


Faure Requiem

Saturday 12th May 2018 at 7.30pm

Latymer School Edmonton

Adoramus will be performing Fauré’s Requiem, a choral favourite, which instead of having an emphasis on wrath and judgement found in other Requiem settings, Fauré’s is noted for its calm, serene acceptance of death. Fauré himself said of the piece “… But it is thus that I see death: as a happy deliverance, an aspiration towards happiness above, rather than as a painful experience.….I wanted to write something different.” The creation was almost certainly a musical tribute to his father, who died in 1885. David Mercer, a long standing former member of the choir requested a performance of this work prior to his death in 2015. As part of our tribute to him, his nephew Ashley Mercer will sing the Bass-Baritone solo and David’s former piano teacher, Stephen Robbings, joins us as soloist in the concerts final work. Adoramus’ own wonderful Nicola Hooke will sing soprano.

The second half of the concert strikes a more joyful note with the inclusion of Mendelssohn’s Hebrides Overture, inspired by his visit to Fingal’s cave, Bartok’s evocative Romanian Folk Dances, Verdi’s setting of the Lord’s Prayer, a new piece by choir member Robin Stephenson entitled “You are the peace” with the concert concluding, in Beethoven’s words, with a ‘brilliant finale’: ‘Choral Fantasia’, “a composition written so that it would unite all the different musical elements highlighted in the concert: piano, chorus and orchestra.”
