The Harvard-Radcliffe Chorus, a college, university and community chorus presents An Evening of French Music: Faure's Requiem and Gounod's St. Cecilia Mass
Faure said it best... “It has been said that my Requiem does not express the fear of death and someone has called it a lullaby of death. But it is thus that I see death... The music of Gounod has been criticised for its inclination towards human tenderness. But his nature predisposed him to feel this way:religious emotion took this form inside him. Is it not necessary to accept the artist's nature?"
We will be accompanied by professional soloists and musicians on violin, cello, harp, and a Rodgers organ.
Edward Elwyn Jones, Art Director, conducting
Ketti Muschler, soprano
Jonas Budris, tenor
David Tinervia, baritone
Thomas Sheehan, organ
