  1. Feel the Spirit - John Rutter
  2. Requiem (1893 version) Op 48 - Gabriel Fauré

Fauré’s Requiem is scored intimately and departs significantly from the standard liturgical text. The work includes the lyrical (and frequently sung as a solo) Pie Jesu and the transcendent In Paradisum, with its soaring vocal line and murmuring harp accompaniment. The prevailing mood is one of peacefulness and serenity, and the work has often been described, quite justly, as a Requiem without the Last Judgement.

By contrast Rutter’s Feel the Spirit, a cycle of seven spirituals, featuring some wonderful mezzo solo singing is vibrant, unique and classy and highly appealing. The ending just makes-you-want-to-jump-up-and-shout-“Yeah!”
