faure requiem

Pegasus returned to the Brandenburg Choral Festival of London with a beautiful programme of choral works, featuring Gabriel Fauré’s renowned setting of the Requiem mass.

The programme included pieces by Brahms, Mendelssohn, Holst, Wood and Ravel. Pegasus also performed a sixteen-part arrangement of Gustav Mahler’s Ich bin der Welt abhanden gekommen and William Walton’s anthem The Twelve, a bravura setting of words by W.H. Auden.
