The saxophone is often closely compared to the human voice, and here one of the choral world’s most beautiful and harrowing works is brought into the realm of the saxophone choir.

The original work had various re-configurations and is usually now performed on a smaller orchestral/choral scale. Whilst this arrangement can be performed with just 6 saxophones (SATTBB) and organ, it would really benefit from a truer choral sonority, but doubling parts and adding the optional Sopranino and Bass parts (which merely carry the Soprano and lower Baritone lines at 8va and 8vb respectively). These variations will of course depend on your particular ensemble and venue.

This is the opening movement and whilst not the best known by itself, it was this that originally drew me into Faure’s marvelous Requiem. The proceeding movements will be available soon, as will a version for two saxophone choirs.
