with Fauré: Requiem.
Paul Carr’s Requiem for an Angel, written in memory of the composer’s mother, combines texts from the Requiem Mass in English and Latin with poetry by Emily Dickinson and Jack Carson, in music which is instantly appealing as well as deeply moving.
The premiere recording on Stone Records, also conducted by Gavin Carr, was chosen as Classic FM’s CD of the Week in November 2010. First performed in 2006, this will be the first chance to hear Requiem for an Angel in Bath.
Also in the programme is the much loved Requiem by Gabriel Fauré, which formed one source of inspiration for Paul Carr’s work.
