Faure's Requiem
Come along an enjoy a day singing Faure’s Requiem with Bath Camerata’s new Musical Director, Benjamin Goodson.

“Faure’s Requiem has to be one of the most beautiful pieces of choral music of all. In Mozart’s, Verdi’s and others’s Requiems, we hear the hell fire and fury. In Faure’s there is only serenity. Singing in a choir is about singing well yourself AND singing well with others. It’s as much about listening as it is anything else. Faure’s Requiem is not only a great to sing, but it’s the perfect piece for a day exploring how we can sing better together. Expect silly exercises, hard work, lots of fun, and the joy of singing this wonderful piece with new friends.” BG
