Bristol Choral Society sing the ever popular Requiem by Fauré. Not for Fauré the ‘shock and awe’ of a Mozart, Berlioz or Verdi Requiem. Refined over a decade, Fauré’s Mass for the dead sustains an abiding solace, concluding with the hope and reassurance of the beautiful In Paradisum.

Also in this concert, BCS explores profound spirituality of a different order, as glittering woodwind, brass, two pianos and harp feature strikingly in Stravinsky’s triptych ‘symphonizing the singing of Psalms’. His wartime Sonata for Two Pianos concludes the programme – a work shot through with a crystalline neoclassicism.
