The Cathedral of St. Philip - Atlanta, GA

Requiem Choral Eucharist

Sunday, November 1  |  4 p.m.

All are invited to join us for a very special worship service on All Saints’ Day (the Eve of All Souls), Sunday, November 1 at 4 p.m., when we will remember by name those members and friends of the Cathedral parish who have died in the faith of Christ during the past year.

The full Cathedral Choir will lead our worship, incorporating Gabriel Fauré’s setting of the ancient and image-rich texts of the Requiem, the ancient Christian mass for the departed. It is one of the most frequently sung and universally beloved works in the sacred repertoire, yet it is rarely experienced in context for which it was written, which is a fully choral service of Holy Communion in celebration of the life of someone who has passed into life eternal. The orchestra, underwritten as a gift to the community by our Friends of Cathedral Music, will use Fauré’s original, most intimate orchestration for strings, harp, French horns, and timpani.

In the church calendar, the Feast of All Souls is the day when we remember those who have died in the faith of Christ. In our remembrance we express the communion of the living and the dead in the mystical body of Christ by a commemoration of those who, having professed faith in the living Christ in days past, have entered into the nearer presence of their Lord. We pray that the transcendent beauty of this music will reveal something of the peace, comfort, and surpassing joy of heaven to all who attend.

Dale Adelmann, Ph.D.
Canon for Music
