As to my Requiem, perhaps I have also instinctively sought to escape from what is thought right and proper, after all the years of accompanying burial services on the organ! I know it all by heart. I wanted to write something different. It was not performed in the United States until , at a student concert at the Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia.
Faure: Requiem Op.48: VI. Libera Me - brass quintet
It was first performed in England in Most of the text is in Latin , except for the Kyrie which is Koine Greek. He slightly altered the texts of the Introit , the Kyrie , Pie Jesu , Agnus Dei , and In Paradisum , but substantially changed the text of the Offertory described below. He did not set the Benedictus the conclusion of the Sanctus , and added two texts from the Order of Burial , Libera me and In Paradisum. He changed " libera animas omnium fidelium defunctorum " "deliver the souls of all the faithful departed" to simply " libera animas defunctorum " "deliver the souls of the departed".
He replaced " Libera eas " "Deliver them" at the beginning of the next verse with a repetition of " O Domine Jesu Christe, Rex gloriae, libera animas defunctorum ", and he omitted the third verse beginning " Sed signifer sanctus He concludes with an added "Amen".

The composition is structured in seven movements:. Its movements and their sections are listed in a table for the scoring in voices , key , time signature using the symbol for common time , equivalent to 4 4 and tempo marking.

The tenors repeat the prayer alone for eternal rest on a simple melody. The sopranos continue similarly that praise is due in Jerusalem, then all voices exclaim " Exaudi " hear. The Kyrie begins with the same melody that the tenor sang before, but now in unison of soprano, alto and tenor, repeated in the following four measures in four-part harmony. The call "Christe" is strong and urgent the first time, repeated more softly a few more times.
The final call " Kyrie " appears pianissimo. The Offertoire begins in B minor with a canon of alto and tenor in short succession on a simple modal melody with little ambitus , in a prayer " O Domine, Jesu Christ, rex gloriae " O Lord, Jesus Christ, King of Glory to free the souls of the departed from eternal punishment and the deep lake, ending in unison. The sequence is repeated beginning one step higher for the next line, and again one step higher for the following more urgent call to Jesus, enforced by the basses.
The voices add only softly, broken by rests, what the prayer is about:
