This is a choral adaptation of Pie Jesu, the most famous movement of Requiem by Fauré. It is one of themasterpieces of all time that I think deserved an adaptation for choir. Hismelody, full of sweetness and beauty, unfolds like a butterfly emerging fromits cocoon. Camille Saint-Saëns said of it: "Just as Mozart's is the only Ave verum Corpus, this is the only Pie Jesu.

Fauré wrote about his Requiem: "It has been said that my Requiem does not express the fear of death and someone has calledit a “lullaby of death ". But it is how I see death: as a happydeliverance, an aspiration to a higher happiness, rather than a painfulexperience”.
