Ep. 32: Repose en paix – Fauré and His Requiem

A Requiem, a Catholic Mass of the Dead, is typically written by a composer when someone is dying or in remembrance of someone who has already died; however, Gabriel Fauré wrote his Requiem for no one, altering it to be a Requiem of peace rather than fear.
