Requiem: Pie Jesu

A couple of months ago I posted the "In Paradisum" excerpt of Gabriel Urbain Fauré's Requiem Mass. Today I bring you the melancholy "Pie Jesu" portion of this beautiful choral work. Performed magnificently by the Choir of New College, this piece evokes in me a sense of tranquility and contemplation not unlike the type you might find inside a monastery or some other sacred environment. Hope you enjoy it.
