Twist And Shout

Fauré's Requiem, an emblematic piece of the French repertoire, performed by the master of Saint-Christophe de Javel, a choir of children, adolescents and young adults.Sobriety, peace, light, interiority... So many words that can characterize Gabriel Fauré's Requiem. Unlike various Requiems of the 19th century which sought theatricality, dramatization and great orchestral effects, Fauré composes a short, peaceful, restrained work, seeking to be in harmony with the liturgy and what it says about hope. Christian. A magnificent work, accessible, whose melodies and harmonies are peaceful and luminous. A repertoire that is perfectly suited to the mastery of Saint-Christophe de Javel who has already delivered a very fine recording of Duruflé's Requiem.Two other religious works by Fauré complete this album. First of all, the Low Mass for women's voices (performed by the children's choir), which also has the sobriety and peaceful character of the Requiem. The CD then ends with the splendid praise of the famous Cantique by Jean Racine which also echoes the luminous and angelic character of the Requiem.
