The Waynesburg University Lamplighters Concert Choir will offer a concert on Tuesday, Nov. 3, at 11 a.m. in Roberts Chapel. The concert is free, and the public is cordially invited to attend. The choir, made up of 50 students and faculty members, will be accompanied by the Waynesburg University Music Program chamber ensemble.

The performance will consist of Gabriel Faure’s Requiem in D minor, Op. 48, which is a choral-orchestral 19th century piece performed in Latin and the best known of Faure’s works. It is written for an orchestra, organ, chorus and two soloists. “Pie Jesu” is the most well-known section of this opus.

According to Melanie Catana, director of choral music at the University, the Requiem is intended as a prayer for God’s mercy at life’s end. The concert is intentionally occurring close to All Saints Day on Sunday, Nov. 1, when loved ones who have passed away are traditionally remembered and honored.
