Fauré: Sanctus from Requiem (ed. John Rutter)

Accompanied; SATB

Taken from Rutter’s edition of Fauré’s Requiem, this angelic and widely beloved Sanctus features both the original French words and an optional English text, translated and adapted for singing by John Rutter himself. Although ideal for funerals and All Souls Day services due to it being composed as part of the Requiem, the more general message of praise in the Sanctus makes it equally suitable for a range of other worship services. Its second keyboard part may be performed on an additional organ, piano, or harp.

John Rutter’s complete edition of Fauré’s Requiem (1893 version) is available from Oxford University Press at the link below.
