40 Days of Enough ... Day 25 "Fauré Requiem" by Paris Conservatoire Orchestra
This record was purchase on the same hunt as "2001 a space odyssey" ... I picked it up fro £1 from the Oxfam charityshop in East Kilbride.
I bought Fauré Requiem because of my love of 'sacred choral music'. I'm not an opera fan ... but I love sacred choral music and this is one piece that I am deeply fond of. There is something deeply spiritual about it and while this piece isn't as overtly Christian as some of the other Requiems ... it still moves me as a work of exquisite beauty.
Not bad for £1.
