Thanks to its transparent texture and its many beautiful melodies, which seem to be token the composerís highly personal relation to death, the Requiem is perhaps Faurťís most popular work.
The musical structure of this frequently heard piece makes it virtually ideal for performance with organ accompaniment. This arrangement takes into account all three of the composerís surviving versions: the early version with string orchestra as well as the two later versions with added winds and with symphony orchestra.
- Standard work from concert repertoire
- Easy-to-play organ arrangement
- Impressive timbral adaptation for organ
