Gabriel Fauré: Requiem
Florent Schmitt: Psalm 47
Lili Boulanger: Psalm 24 “La terre appartient à l’Éternel"

In early 20th century Paris, the lives and music of Fauré, Schmitt, and Boulanger were inextricably linked. Schmitt credited Fauré as his greatest influence and Boulanger knew Fauré as a family friend from childhood. Come explore the musical lineage of these three composers. Be transported by Faure’s transcendent Requiem performed alongside Schmitt’s triumphant and declamatory setting of Psalm 47’s “O Clap Your Hands All Ye People! Shout to God with the voice of triumph!” and Boulanger’s exuberant Psalm 24 “The earth is the Lord’s, and all its fullness.” Fauré’s influence on both composers can be heard in their psalm settings and paved the way for future generations of composers.
