Beauford's Paris: Notre Dame Cathedral and Fauré's Requiem

Beauford lost his mother in February 1958 and mourned her death well into the month of May. According to his biography, Amazing Grace: A Life of Beauford Delaney, he heard Gabriel Fauré's Requiem performed at Notre Dame Cathedral and began to consider it a requiem for her.
