Faure’s Requiem in D Minor is the best known of his large works. Its focus is on eternal rest and consolation. He said of his work “Everything I managed to entertain by way of religious illusion I put into my Requiem, which moreover is dominated from beginning to end by a very human feeling of faith in eternal rest.”
First performed in 1974, Rutter’s Gloria is based on one of the Gregorian chants associated with the Latin text drawn from the Ordinary of the Mass. The division of the work into three movements – proclamatory, prayerful, and joyfully affirmative – corresponds to the divisions in the text.
The concert will be led by our artistic director and conductor, David Lozano Torres. Mr. Torres is currently conductor of the UCSB Lumina Choir, assistant conductor of the UCSB Chamber Choir, and artistic director and conductor of the elite choral ensemble Vocal Infinity. He is presently completing his Doctor of Musical Arts degree in Choral Conducting at UCSB.
