In the sign of faith

Dorothee Mields Soprano

Krešimir Stražanac Bassbaritone

Collegium Vocale Gent

Orchestre des Champs-Elysées

Philippe Herreweghe Conductor


Works by Gabriel Fauré, Anton Bruckner and Igor Stravinsky


The Belgian conductor Philippe Herreweghe, the "high priest of early music", also interprets classical, romantic and modern works in an authentic sound. Together with "his" musicians - the Orchestre de la Champs Elysées and the Collegium Vocale Gent - he creates a concert that is entirely dedicated to faith. Death does not have the last word. In Gabriel Fauré's gentle Requiem op. 48 - without "Dies irae"! - he is seen merely as redemption and entry into paradise. The young monastery organist Anton Bruckner plays two "Aequale" - short, serious, choral-like funeral music for three trombones. And Igor Stravinsky's "Psalm Symphony" is one of the most important sacred musical works of the 20th century. Three Old Testament psalms form the basis for a work rich in contrast for choir and orchestra - without violins and violas, but with a larger percussion and wind instrumentation. The finale is a calm, anthemic song of praise to the Lord.
