Fauré Requiem by Candlelight
  • Edinburgh Fringe

There can be few more atmospheric settings in which to experience Faurs Requiem Mass than by candlelight in the historic St Giles' Cathedral. Composed purely for the pleasure of it, and much loved for its serenity and soothing gentleness, his Requiem interprets death as a happy deliverance. Faures best-known work returns to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe after last year's sell-out performance by the National Youth Choir of Scotland showed 'great musical prowess ... delivered with fiery, spirited passion' (Herald).
