Fauré's charming Requiem was composed in 1888 and first performed la Madeleine in Paris.

This will be the second time FCS has performed the Vierne Mass in Our Lady's Church. It was written barely ten years after Fauré's work, and performed not even two miles away, at St Sulpice in Paris, and exploits the antiphonal effect of the Grand-0rgue on the West Gallery, with the Choir Organ, and the choir itself, at the East end of the Church. The position of Our Lady's Organ allows us to replicate the composer's intentions.
