A popular Requiem arranged for female voices

In this arrangement of Fauré’s “Requiem” for soloists (SA), female choir (SSAA) and organ, the tenor and bass parts are distributed among the altos which has necessitated some judicious adaptations in the part-writing. The second soprano replicates the original alto part largely unchanged, while the original baritone solo now resounds in the alto.

The organ arrangement takes all three versions of the “Requiem” into consideration but primarily follows the second version of 1893 in terms of the rhythmic presentation of the instrumental parts.
However, the organ part is tailored to the arrangement rather than trying to imitate the sound of the orchestra.
This vocal score is compatible with the performance material of the original work (BA 9461).

Press reviews
„In dieser Bearbeitung … werden die Tenor- und Bassstimmen auf die Altstimmen verteilt. Das macht gelegentliche Anpassungen in der Stimmführung notwendig, die mit aller Behutsamkeit vorgenommen wurden.“
