Gabriel Faure ís unconventional composition Requiem has become a firm favourite in the repertoire and available here is the vocal score, for Soloists and SATB Choir with Piano Accompaniment, as edited by Desmond Ratcliffe. Requiem  is probably the most famous of Gabriel Faure 's long works, taking him around 20 years to compose. The entire piece consists of seven movements with a total playing time of around 35 minutes. Although Faure 's mother and father both passed away in the early stages of composition, these tragic events were not the motivation for him to create the piece. Equally interestingly, this Requiem  is not set to the standard liturgical text, with the wrathful 'Dies Irae' and 'Tuba Mirum' being omitted, and a lyrical 'Pie Jesu' and transcendent 'Paradisum' being added. The omissions were ordinarily opportunities for composers to showcase the dramatic possibilities of a chorus and orchestra to symbolise damnation, and so their deliberate exclusion by Faure creates a relatively calm and peaceful atmosphere, with sublime vocal harmonies and heavenly melodies. The work begins softly before dynamic volume and tempo changes are made throughout the piece, enhancing the solemn beauty of the voices. Stunning interplay between the Sopranos and Baritones gives way to some excellent opportunities for soloists that are perfectly married with the uplifting unison climaxes. Faure himself spoke eloquently about the Requiem , stating that his work was accurately called a "lullaby of death", and that this speaks to his view that death is a positive transition, rather than a painful experience. It is this sentiment that informs the music, being melancholy but not depressing, heart-wrenching but not heart-breaking. For singers and listeners alike, Gabriel Faure 's Requiem  is one of the most famous and beautiful choral works ever created. This great quality sheet music is accurate and a pleasure to read, doing this masterful composition justice. The Requiem  is certainly unconventional, but not too difficult for most choirs, and is guaranteed to leave your audiences speechless. Please not that this work is a setting of the Roman Catholic Mass for the Dead, and thus the lyrics are in Latin.

Brilliant service

I needed a copy of this lovely work for a 'scratch' charity peformance, and the person organising for me to borrow one forgot! I found Forwoods on line, and hoped their 'one day' delivery would be quicker than Amazon's. It was - it arrived the next morning. Very grateful, excellent service.
