This edition presents Fauré's masterpiece in a form which accords with his original intention that it should be a liturgical Requiem with accompaniment of organ and chamber ensemble. The 1893 version is an expansion of Fauré's original, prepared by the composer for a performance at the Church of the Madeleine in Paris and containing two additional movements, the Offertoire and the Libera me. In contrast to the fully orchestrated version that was published in 1900, this edition preserves the original chamber instrumentation, and it also contains a full English translation by John Rutter.

Orchestration: 2 bn, 4 hn, 2 tpt, timp, hp, org, violin solo, vla 1 & 2, cello 1 & 2, db. Only 2 hn, hp, org, and str are essential.
