REQUIEM – GABRIEL FAURÉ
On Thursday, November 6, 2014, at 8:00 p.m., the choir of Central
Presbyterian Church, Hamilton, under the direction of Paul Grimwood,
will sing the Requiem by Gabriel Fauré. This is a particularly
suitable time to perform this work, as we pause to think about the
meaning of Remembrance Day on November 11.
This Requiem, one of the most beautiful of all 19th century works, was
written in the 1880s for the choir at the Madeleine Church in Paris,
France. With Fauré’s gifts of sensuous harmony, beautiful melody and
great attention to orchestral colour, this Requiem is for many a
supreme religious experience.
The choir's yearly tradition of presenting a major choral works, has
called forth praise in the past from The Hamilton Spectator's Hugh
Fraser, who has said their performances are "splendid... an exquisite
surprise... some of the finest music you'll hear anywhere", and "(the
first thing noticed is) the gorgeous sound that this choir
makes...remarkable for both excellence and depth of feeling".
Soloists for the concert will be Julie Ludwig, soprano, and
Tom Fleming, baritone.
Fauré’s Requiem takes place at Central Presbyterian Church,
165 Charlton Ave. W., Hamilton, on Thursday, November 6th, at
THE MISSION COMMITTEE will be supplying a supper each
month at St. David's ‘Moms to Moms’ program. These
moms could use our help with some basic needs. Items
most needed are:
• Baby Wipes (the large boxes of multiple packages of
wipes are easier to hand out)
• Diapers: Sizes 3, 4, 5, 6
• Pull-ups: Sizes T2-T3, T3-T4, T4-T5
• Toilet paper
• 2 little boys need some pants, size 4 that pull on
and off easily
• Pants - size 3 - for a tall 2 1/2 year old boy
In addition, there will be 3 new babies born around
Christmas time so some items for newborns will be needed
as well.
Also needed are some large toys such as trucks and bikes
that the children can ride around in inside the gym. Small
tables and chairs, large plastic dump trucks, tractors, and
blocks would also be helpful -- these could be used but in
good condition. These items will help to amuse the
children while the moms are in their meetings.
