Requiem. 

In his seven section
Requiem, the French composer Gabriel Faure distilled some of the most beautiful
melodies he ever composed. The creation was almost certainly a musical tribute
to his father who died in 1885, three years before work on the Requiem
commenced”.

 

“The Five Mystical Songs are a
musical composition by English composer Ralph Vaughan Williams written between
1906 and 1911. The work sets out four poems by seventeenth century Welsh poet
and Anglican priest George Herbert from his 1633 collection The Temple: Sacred
Poems.”
