SSO Performs Faure's Requiem this Saturday

Faure's setting of the Requiem Mass, with its imagery of divine serenity, is performed by the SSO and chorus this coming Saturday 5 March 2011. Let's hear Lucia Popp and James Morris sing their lovely arias from the piece:

Here's the last movement In Paradisum, its image of a soul ascension toward heaven seems like the perfect counterpoint to the apocalyptic theatrics of Verdi's setting. See how the SSO fares in their performance by getting tickets from the Events Page.
