Fauré Requiem | Songs of Nature: San Mateo
Ragazzi’s boys and young men, along with alumni chorus Ragazzi Continuo, present Gabriel Fauré’s masterpiece Requiem in D minor. One of the romantic-era composer’s most beloved pieces, Fauré wrote that the work is “dominated from beginning to end by a very human feeling of faith in eternal rest”. The Requiem’s achingly beautiful Pie Jesu for solo soprano voice will be sung as the composer intended, by a boy treble. Ragazzi is thrilled to present this magnificent music in its entirety, using the original orchestration. In the concert’s second half, Ragazzi Continuo will present music that examines humans’ relationship with the natural world. Songs will explore the peace, joy and awe inspired by flowing water, forests, and gardens.
