18th Century Concert Orchestra

Georgina Stalblow soprano 

Simon Grange Baritone

Jongen Messe en l'honneur du Saint-Sacrement, 40'

Boulanger Pie Jesu, 5'

Faure Cantique de Jean Racine, 5'

Faure Requiem, 35'

Of the many settings of the Requiem, this is probably the most widely loved. In comparison with the large-scale masterpieces of Verdi, Brahms and Berlioz, Faure’s setting seems gentle and unassuming, yet it is this very quality of understatement which contributes so eloquently to the work’s universal appeal.  Joseph Jongen Messe en l'honneur du Saint-Sacrement, in contrast, is rarely performed and is one of only a handful of choral pieces of Jongen to survive. 


The Venue

The Chapel is right in the middle of campus. You might love its retro sixties architecture, or perhaps you’ll think it looks like a castle. Either way, you can’t miss it!
