Notes & Reviews:
Starting from the great Cathedral of Chartres, our tour takes us to Brittany and Normandy in Northern France, and to Franche Comte and Burgundy. Many of the scenes chosen match closely the music of Faure and in particular that of his Requiem, with a wide range of corresponding images, from the calvaries of Brittany to the startling architecture of Le Corbusier in his church of Notre Dame du Haut at Ronchamp, and from The Last Judgement by Roger van der Weyden in Beaune to the tapestries of Jean Lurçat at Angers. The music chosen for this tour is by Gabriel Faure. It includes his Requiem, the evocative Pavane, his Sicilienne, and the Berceuse.Notes & Reviews:
