Oriana Presents Faure's Requiem

Returning to Australian shores from their inaugural International Tour, the Sunshine Coast Oriana Choir, will present their final concert event for 2012, featuring Faure's beautiful and evocative Requiem and Schubert's youthful and exuberant Mass in G. The November 25 event will be performed at the Lake Kawana Centre at 3:00 pm. Faure’s Requiem has been called “a lullaby of death”, in contrast to other works of the religious text, which can express fear and solemnity. Faure said of his work, “But it is thus that I see death: as a happy deliverance, an aspiration towards happiness above, rather than as a painful experience.” The tender, beautiful melodies are brimming with the very human sense of faith in eternal rest. Franz Schubert wrote his Mass in G Major when still in his teens and as such it is fresh, youthful and exuberant.

Oriana are also keen to report on some of their overseas adventures and will share a presentation of tour highlights prior to interval. Joining Oriana this year are soprano Rachael Griffin, and Oriana's own soloists, tenor Scott Gaedtke and bass Rowan Howard. A Chamber Orchestra ensemble comprising some of Queensland’s most talented musicians, led once again by violinist, Neridah Oostenbroek, will accompany Oriana.
