On 14th of November at Bridgewater Hall in Manchester, Jamie will be performing the Faure Requiem with Genesis Sixteen.
The Sixteen present a concert of choral favourites alongside some musical rarities – all accompanied by the Bridgewater Hall’s magnificent Marcussen organ. They are joined for two items by Genesis Sixteen.
November 2014 marks the 40th anniversary of the death of the Swiss composer, Frank Martin. His Mass dates from the 1920s, while his Cantate pour le 1er Août celebrates Switzerland’s National Day. The concert ends with that moving masterpiece, Fauré’s much loved Requiem, which offers profound consolation in the face of human mortality.
