Requiem: Gabriel Fauré

Requiem: Gabriel Fauré

Recorded live in front of an international audience in historic Iona Abbey. The stormy weather raging outside adds to the unique atmospheric quality of a memorable Sunday afternoon as the howling wind can be heard throughout the fabric of the building.

Visiting one of the holiest places in Scotland on the wildest edge of Europe, this Diamond Jubilee recording marks 110 years of choral excellence – 60 years of the Glasgow Phoenix Choir and 50 years of its predecessor the Glasgow Orpheus Choir.

The recording is made possible thanks to the generous support of Co-op Funeralcare and the Vivian Angus Bequest. CD Cover: Foam And Spray, North End, Iona – ‘JOLOMO’ ; John Lowrie Morrison OBE
