A popular Requiem arranged for female voices

In this arrangement of Faure's"Requiem"for soloists (SA), female choir (SSAA) and organ, the tenor and bass parts are distributed among the altos which has necessitated some judicious adaptations in the part-writing. The second soprano replicates the original alto part largely unchanged, while the original baritone solo now resounds in the alto.

The organ arrangement takes all three versions of the"Requiem"into consideration but primarily follows the second version of 1893 in terms of the rhythmic presentation of the instrumental parts.
However, the organ part is tailored to the arrangement rather than trying to imitate the sound of the orchestra.
This vocal score is compatible with the performance material of the original work (BA 9461).

  • November 12, 2020 Shameful edition

    It's full of mistakes... There's a separata with no less than 27 corrections. Too many for a "pristine" edition. Should be advertised when purchasing the copy or discontinued until there's a decent version.
