Concert Description

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

Come, enjoy an evening of luscious music that will fill your heart with warmth as we begin the Holiday Season.
