Remembrance Sunday Eucharist - 12 November 2017

Recorded on
Sunday, 12 November 2017

On Sunday the Choir performed Gabriel Fauré​'s celebrated Requiem Op. 48 at the Eucharist held to the memory of the fallen of both World Wars and all subsequent conflicts. The work is characterised by the consolatory message of final rest in death, rather than the threat of eternal damnation common to many other settings of the Requiem Mass. Indeed, Fauré wrote of it, "...my Requiem... is dominated from beginning to end by a very human feeling of faith in eternal rest."
