An eclectic concert with a wide variety of expressions of piety and religious fervor: serene, touching, and playful.
Requiem in C Minor - Luigi Cherubini
Masterpiece of sacred music, funeral music par excellence, better than Mozart’s Requiem according to Beethoven !
Stabat Mater - Giuseppe Verdi
Pureness and simplicity of Palestrina combined with the passion of Il Trovatore !
Gloria - Francis Poulenc
“...I had in mind those frescoes by Gozzoli where the angels stick out their tongues; and also some serious Benedictine monks I had once seen playing a game of football.” F. Poulenc
