Gabriel Fauré's Requiem is the key work among the sacred compositions by the French master. Already during the composer's lifetime, it proved very successful with the audiences, and this success remains undiminished all over the world to this day. In contrast to more "theatrically" conceived settings, it was Fauré's intention to evoke a peaceful and conciliatory mood with his work. Even though the choral parts are very suitable for most choir singers due to their melodic accessibility, many passages are harmonically extremely sophisticated and require careful preparation in rehearsal.
