Heaven and Earth ()

This Summer we are thrilled to bring two beloved works to Lichfield Cathedral: Gabriel Fauré’s Requiem and Antonin Dvořák’s Te Deum.

Fauré’s Requiem is one of the most human of all sacred works, slowly shifting its gaze from earthly vulnerability to the hope of eternity. It was almost certainly written as a musical tribute to his father who died in 1885, three years before Fauré began work on the piece. Unlike many requiem masses. Fauré’s is noted for its serene, calm outlook, providing musical solace and a most peaceful vision of paradise.

In addition to his Requiem, there will also be the chance to hear an orchestral version of another of his favourite works — the Pavane in F#m, named after a slow processional dance from the Spanish Court.

The Te Deum (We praise thee, O God) by Dvořák is uplifting and joyful in character and certainly one of the most spectacular of his works. It was written at the beginning of his “American period” which would culminate in the triumphant New World Symphony. Dvořák’s faith was coloured by his love of nature and the composition of his Te Deum has an earthiness not normally found in the ethereal world of sacred music.

So, please join us for an enchanting evening where we aim to share a unique vision of the heavenly and earthly realms.
