Under the direction of Nathaniel Berman, the UCSC Concert Choir performs Gabriel Faure's masterwork, Requiem, in its original 1893 version for choir, small orchestra, and soloists. Faure's Requiem is a gentle, meditative work, nonetheless suffused with the pathos of Faure's personal losses. In speaking about the calm, ethereal affect of his Requiem, Faure said "I see death . . . as a happy deliverance, an aspiration towards happiness above."
