The Friday OT on a Saturday: Gabriel Fauré; Requiem

I was on the same time zone, a little late for work. Turned on the TV while making a coffee, had about five minutes to get out the house…zap to CNN…catch the headlines before running out the d…but, what is that? Didn’t leave the house.

Doing the honours are the King’s College Choir, Cambridge and the New Philharmonia Orchestra.


    Beautiful. Dates back to 1969, I believe.


    Remarkable. Jaw dropping. No wonder you never got out the door.


    Beautiful piece of singing/music. Takes me back to when my son – now in his 40s and living in the Chicago area – was a boy treble and sang the Faure Pie Jesu, He was good but not quite the Kings College standard
