Gounod Requiem

According to Wikipedia: "In 1893, shortly after he had put the finishing touches to a requiem written for his grandson, he died of a stroke in Saint-Cloud, France."  According to Peter Tiboris, Music Director of MidAmerica Productions: "On Charles Gounod’s death, his requiem was performed at La Madeleine with Gabriel Fauré conducting, Camille Saint-Saens playing the organ and Giuseppe Verdi in the audience!"

Here is one of several renditions of the compete Requiem found on YouTube.  This version follows the score (attached below) from the Choral Public Domain Library (see: http://www2.cpdl.org/wiki/index.php/Requiem_(1893)_(Charles_Gounod) )

[Artwork (credit Wikipedia): "The Nightmare is a 1781 oil painting by Anglo-Swiss artist Henry Fuseli. It shows a woman in deep sleep with her arms thrown below her, and with a demonic and apelike incubus crouched on her chest."  Not sure what the painting has to do with Gounod's Requiem?]


Below are practice tracks of six movements of this Requiem derived from two sources: (1) the YouTube video above and (2) a set of "midi" (electronic keyboard) tracks for each of the movements from the CPDL.

You can play these tracks directly on your computer. You can download the tracks to play them in a music application such as iTunes, Windows Media Player, RealPlayer, etc., or make your own CDs.  You can also download CPDL's version of the vocal score.  (MidAmerica has not indicated which version of the vocal score will be used in Paris.  Stay tuned.)


Here is the index of the movements in the CPDL vocal score:
    1. Introit & Kyrie      page  1
    2. Dies Irae                  "    13
    3. Sanctus                    "    55
    4. Benedictus               "    59
    5. PieJesu                     "    69
    6. Agnus Dei                "    79

Note: Cyberbass does not have tracks for the Gounod Requiem.
