A rare chance to hear Faure's much loved Requiem in it's original 1888 orchestration with solo violin and double violas.

In 2011 NCS commissioned a companion piece using the same orchestral forces from Andrew Mildinhall. The text of the Requiem Mass is interspersed with dramatic war poetry in an approachable and dramatic style.
