Glenview Presbyterian Church presents the Requiem March 24
North York Mirror
Glenview Presbyterian Church will present In Paradisum, featuring the Requiem, Sunday, March 24 at 7 p.m.
The concert will also feature Cantique de Jean Racine.
“We’re performing the original version of the work, reclaimed by the distinguished composer John Rutter,” Peter Merrick, the church’s director of music, said in a release. “For those who know only the standard version of the Requiem, this one comes as revelation: soberly scored for divided low strings and a few winds, this version - undoubtedly the one (composer Gabriel) Faure himself preferred - had an intimacy and a dark, lustrous quality that is very special.”
Tickets cost $20 and are available at the door at 1 Glenview Ave.
