As well as his ‘Cantique de Jean Racine’, and other compositions from the late 19th century French choral library, including Duruflé’s ‘Quatre Motets’.

The music of Fauré’s Requiem is peaceful, serene, elevating and comforting. The ‘In Paradisum‘ is so recognizable as to identify this entire work as soundly as the ‘Hallelujah Chorus’ identifies Handel’s ‘Messiah

Perhaps I have sought to depart from what is conventional because for so long I was organist at services of internment.  I’m fed up with that.  I wanted to do something different.

Christ First United Church
151 Lakeshore Rd. W.
Mississauga, ON

Mozart’s music continues to transport listeners to a timeless world of unparalleled beauty and emotion. It seamlessly blends grandeur and intimacy, capturing the essence of the human experience. Mozart’s ‘Requiem’ has the power to evoke a myriad of emotions in the hearts of listeners, and endures as a cornerstone in classical music repertoire. Within his ‘Requiem’, the hauntingly beautiful Lacrimosa’s  melancholic melodies, expressed through delicate orchestration, evoke a profound sense of longing and sorrow.

There can be no doubt that the 1984 movie adaptation Peter Shaffer’s play ‘Amadeus’ introduced new listeners to Mozart and his music. The majesty and mystery surrounding Mozart’s famous ‘Requiem’ continues to attract audiences today.
