Requiem – All Souls

Friday, Nov. 1, 7:30 p.m., Historic Church
St. David’s Parish Choir will sing Gabriel Fauré’s Requiem as part of the service of Holy Communion for All Faithful Departed (All Souls). Fauré’s well-known and beloved setting of the Mass for the Dead, more intimate and less dramatic than many others, was first intended as a liturgical work and finds a fitting home in the service for which it was written, where the music’s warm beauty helps us enter into prayer for the departed and examination of our own lives. Please join us. Free parking in our garage on Trinity between 7th & 8th.

Thursday, Nov. 21, 7 p.m., Historic Church
