The City of Dunedin Choir, conducted by David Burchell, presents a concert in St Paul's Cathedral.

The programme includes Fauré Requiem and Cantique de Jean Racine and more.

Gabriel Fauré is regarded as the master of the French art song, or mélodie. His works ranged from an early romantic style, when in his early years he emulated the style of Mendelssohn and others, to late 19th century Romantic, and finally to a 20th century aesthetic. The Requiem, Op. 48, was not composed to the memory of a specific person but, in Fauré's words, "for the pleasure of it." It was first performed in 1888.

Join us for an afternoon of beautiful music performed to world-class standards.
