Maria Mater gratiæ Op.47/2 N 96
Faure Maria Mater gratiæ Op.47/2 N 96
Motet for tenor and baritone (or soprano and mezzo-soprano) and organ or piano.
The motets and choral pieces, composed with the distinctive features of the Madeleine organ in mind, enchant with their colourful, floating harmonies and convey a certain intimacy even with their ritualized Latin texts. These works are very well suited for performances by small vocal ensembles. A novelty is the inclusion of the double bass part (ad libitum) which does not appear consistently in the first editions but corresponds to the musical practice at the Madeleine.
Numerous gems such as the “Cantique de Jean Racine” or the “Messe basse” are published in performing editions based on the musical text of the “Gabriel Fauré – Œuvres complètes”.
- Urtext of the “Gabriel Fauré – Œuvres complètes”
- Charming repertoire for small vocal ensembles
- With a small-scale instrumental accompaniment, predominantly organ
