Faure’s Requiem – 27th March 2019


By 2018 Nathaniel Hone

This event was driven by the Cathedral School but brought together school choirs from all around the county in Hereford Cathedral.

In the first half, we heard classical pieces by Mozart and Debussy before a new piece called Night Sky, written by Judah Moore, a Hereford Cathedral School, musician of what was obvious talent. We also heard Time by Hans Zimmer, the soundtrack for the 2010 movie Inception followed by The Curse of the Black Pearl written by Claus Badell for the movie, The Pirates of the Caribbean. All good fun.

In the second half, a change in mood as we heard Faure’s Requiem. The choir was some hundreds strong with many very young people, many apparently without music but clearly singing their hearts out at the right times under David Evans’ baton. The Pie Jesu was exquisite. What an experience for the young choir to remember.
