Two versions of the same Requiem
Thirteen years after his memorable recording of the first version of the Fauré Requiem - an intimate version first performed by the composer in 1892, at Saint-Gervais in Paris - Philippe Herreweghe here conducts the 1901 version for full orchestra commissioned by Fauré's publisher for performance in large concert halls.
Fauré said of this masterpiece: 'My Requiem was composed for nothing.... for pleasure, if I may say so!'
