Gabriel Fauré was born in France in 1845. Under the tutelage of the reknown musician,
Fauré was appointed organist at
the Church of Saint-Sauveur, at Rennet in Brittany.
In 1888 his Requiem, Op. 48 was performed for the first time. It has
been described as "a lullaby of death" because Fauré tempers the amount of
dramatic content. However, the Introit and Kyrie are exceptions to this
primary characteristics are the use of varying dynamics and constant crescendo
and decrescendo. This masterwork is a great festival or contest piece.
The opening Introit and Kyrie are the most performed portion of this Requiem Mass.
