Though at the time of composing the Requiem in the late 1880s his parents had recently died, Fauré maintained that he had no specific reason for composing it. It is a work of both raw passion and elegant beauty. As a staple of choral repertoire worldwide, this is essential listening for those who have never heard the work before; and for those familiar with it, you will know that the music, combined with the beauty of the Cathedral of St. Stephen, brings a transcendent experience in which to meditate on thoughts of the faithful departed.
