Assabet Valley Mastersingers to perform Glories of France, Requiem
January 16 @ 3:30 pm
Westborough – Assabet Valley Mastersingers is proud to provide a bonus concert this season. Glories of France, Requiem in d minor by Gabriel Faure and Gloria by Francis Poulenc, will be presented on Sunday, Jan. 16, at 3:30 p.m., at The Congregational Church of Westborough, 57 West Main St. Dr. Robert P. Eaton, Founder and Artistic Director, will conduct the chorus with soprano Kristen Watson and baritone Thaddeus Bell, accompanied by organist Brett McGuire.
This concert pairs two of France’s most acclaimed choral composers. Faure’s Requiem is a sublime statement of faith with some of the most beautiful melodies he ever composed. Like the Requiems of Durufle and Brahms, it provides comfort and consolation and has become a favorite of performers and audiences alike, By contrast Poulenc’s Gloria is an exuberant declaration of praise with lively rhythms, beautiful melodies and an overall eclectic musical style.
