Voluntary    Adagio    Tomaso Albinoni (1671-1751)

Tomaso Giovanni Albinoni was an Italian composer of the Baroque era. His output includes operas, concertos, sonatas for one to six instruments, sinfonias, and solo cantatas. He is best remembered today for a work called Adagio in G minor, attributed to him but largely written by Remo Giazotto, a 20th century musicologist and composer, who was a cataloger of the works of Albinoni.

Offertory Anthem    Agnus Dei from Requiem    Gabriel Fauré (1845-1924)

French composer, Gabriel Fauré (1845-1924), is regarded as one of the greatest masters of art song. His contribution to the genre has impacted countless other artists in the twentieth century. As a composer of sacred music, Fauré’s output is significantly smaller, totaling only eight opuses, among them the popular Requiem, Op. 48. Between the ages and thirty-five and forty-five, Fauré struggled with depression. Although he enjoyed a rather successful career, a broken engagement caused his personal life to become unstable, ultimately impacting his output as a composer.

Communion Motet    In Paradisum from Requiem    Gabriel Fauré

In paradisum deducant te Angeli;
In tuo adventu suscipiant te martyres,
Et perducant te in civitatem sanctam Jerusalem.
Chorus angelorum te suscipiat,
Et cum Lazaro quondam paupere,
Aeternam habeas requiem.

May the angels lead you into paradise;
May the martyrs receive you at your arrival,
And lead you to the holy city Jerusalem.
May the choirs of angels receive you,
And with Lazarus, once poor,
May you have eternal rest.
