Good Friday concert
March 25, 7:30 p.m.
Poulenc: Four Motets for a Time of Penitence
Faure: Cantique de Jean Racine, Op. 11
Faure: Requiem, Op. 48
Poulenc hoped to be remembered particularly for his sacred choral music. These motets are full of drama and deep feeling. The Cantique is one of Faure’s early works, a graduation piece from the Ecole Niedermeyer in 1865. The Requiem was composed in 1887, intended simply, in Faure’s words, “for the pleasure of it.” Both works demonstrate Faure’s highly individual, impressionistic harmonic language.
