For SATB accompanied by strings and harp, or organ or piano Faure's Cantique de Jean Racine has all the emotional appeal and refined elegance that one associates with its composer, and has a cherished place in the repertory of both sacred and secular choirs. The orchestration makes the work suitable for programming with Rutter's edition of Faure's Requiem.
