Three Choirs Festival Youth Choir
Geraint Bowen conductor
Fauré Cantique de Jean Racine 7'
G Williams Sea Sketches 21'
Duruflé Requiem 41'
Two beautiful and enduringly popular works of the French repertoire frame this evening’s concert. We begin with Fauré’s miniature but sublime Cantique de Jean Racine, followed by Grace Williams’s vivacious suite for string orchestra, depicting the characteristics of the sea and the composer’s longing for it. Duruflé’s most substantial work, his setting of the Requiem Mass, evokes meditative images of rest and peace.
Supported by The Elmley Foundation and Fr Michael Thomas; Geraint Bowen supported by Pamela White
