Fauré's Requiem is just melancholy. It's such a strange, sad piece. I think he wrote it when a beloved family member had died if I remember correctly. It doesn't follow the usual requiem formula since it ends with In Paradisum, which has more redemptive atmosphere.
I think it's a beautiful piece of work.
