Chorus Angelicus & Gaudeamus joins the combined choirs of St. Patrick-St. Anthony Church of Hartford, and Dr. Ezequiel Menéndez, organist and Director of Music at the Cathedral of St. Joseph, to bring to life one of the most cherished of choral masterpieces: the intimate, peaceful and loving Requiem by French composer Gabriel Fauré, and, magnificent choral works by the internationally acclaimed American composer Eric Whitacre.
Fauré’s beloved Requiem, a lullaby of eternal rest and an expression of resigned thanksgiving, features organ, mixed chorus and two soloists.
Portions of Defying Gravity, which Chorus Angelicus recently performed under the direction of Eric Whitacre and Stephan Schwartz at Lincoln Center, will be showcased. Gabriel Löfvall, director.
