for soprano and baritone soloists, SATB chorus, and the composer's original chamber instrumentation
This edition presents Faure's masterpiece in a form which accords with his original intention that it should be a liturgical Requiem with accompaniment of organ and chamber ensemble. The 1893 version is an expansion of Faure's original, prepared by the composer for a performance at the Church of the Madeleine in Paris and containing two additional movements, the Offertoire and the Libera me. In contrast to the fully orchestrated version that was published in 1900, this edition
preserves the original chamber instrumentation, and it also contains a full English translation by John Rutter. Complete orchestral and vocal material is available on hire/rental, and the vocal score, full score, and parts are also available on sale.

Review quote

The simplified, pared-down textures of this revived Requiem were a revelation, and seemed to add, rather than detract from the work's power to move. The Oxford University Press Choral Classics series has continued to be a vehicle for Rutter's work as editor and to showcase interesting historical curiosities . . . Faure's economical interweaving of the vocal lines seems only to magnify the music's poignancy and limpid purpose. * Matthew Greenall, The Singer, April 2004 *

About Gabriel Faure

John Rutter was born in London in 1945 and studied music at Clare College, Cambridge. His compositions embrace choral, orchestral, and instrumental music, and he has edited or co-edited various choral anthologies, including four Carols for Choirs volumes with Sir David Willcocks and the Oxford Choral Classics series. From 1975 to 1979 he was Director of Music at Clare College, and in 1981 he formed his own choir, the Cambridge Singers. He now
divides his time between composition and conducting and is sought after as a guest conductor for the world's leading choirs and orchestras.
