In this concert we contrast the glorious, rich and soulful melodies of Faure’s sublime Requiem, culminating in the serenity of the ‘In Paradisum’, with Finzi’s sombre and intense setting of two poems by the metaphysical poet Richard Crashaw, in which the melodies perfectly match the words, ebbing and flowing to ecstatic climaxes.
