19th Century Parisian music
With Da Capo Singers and Southend Wind Orchestra
With Da Capo Singers and Southend Wind Orchestra.
- Gounod's Petite Symphonie, a delightful opener from the woodwind.
- Faure's Requiem, sung by the Da Capo Singers, with woodwind and organ.
- Berlioz' Symphonie Funebre et Triomphale, a rare opportunity to hear this huge work, originally for a military band of 200 players coming together to commemorate a time of a national upheaval and looking forward to a new resurgence of life and hope - themes that are so relevant to us today.
