Faith and eternal rest
The Arctic Philharmonic’s contribution to this year’s
Bodø International Organ Festival (BIOF) is Gabriel Faurés’ grand Requiem in D
Minor. Composed between 1887 and 1890, this is the best known of his major
He referred to his Requiem as “un petit Requie” but, in its complete orchestral version from 1900, it is anything but a small work: The premier performance of the work in Paris involved more than 250 performers! This work was played at Faurés’ funeral in Paris in 1924.
