Don Yorty writes “The Illuminations were drawn in 37 days. Basil had a portable record player and one of the records he played as he painted and drew was Faure’s Requiem. When he asked me to put together a video with the Illuminations and Fauré’s Requiem, I was happy to do it. The video follows. Enjoy.”
