Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0486271552, Paperback)

The requiem--the Roman Catholic mass for the dead--is one of those texts that has appealed to countless composers. You want bombast? You got bombast. You want serenely-secure-in-the-faith-of-life-everlasting? You got it. But if you hunger for a quietly comforting taste of the heavenly and ethereal, look no further than Gabriel Fauré's luminous, shimmering setting of the requiem. The Fauré Requiem, when well performed, offers calming succor to those who suffer the vicissitudes of grief. The soprano solo "Pie Jesu" is an exquisite prayer that can hardly fail to move the listener. To see how Fauré achieved his understated but uplifting effects, go through this complete Dover score. Like most Dover editions, this one is a reprint of another publisher's out-of-copyright work, and may contain some out-of-date scholarship. But it is a superb resource for the musician, professional, amateur, or listener.
