A couple friends and I attended the Pittsburgh Symphony’s final concert series of the season last night, and it was spectacular. Faure’s Requiem, and the Saint-Saens Organ Symphony. Absolutely gorgeous, lengthy standing ovation at the end of the night.
To give you a taste, here’s the Sanctus from the Faure Requiem, this version recorded at Kings College Cambridge. Enjoy!
Sanctus, sanctus, sanctus, dominus deus sabbaoth
Holy, holy holy Lord God of hosts
Pleni sunt coeli et terra gloria tua
All of heaven and earth gives glory to you
Hosanna in excelsis
Hosanna in the highest
