There is a show, and it is written that they will perform

Gabriel Fauré, Requiem, op. 48

I searched on Spotify so I found that Requiem for Faure has too many op (i don't know how to call them) and there is also something called (Pavane) as you see

enter image description here

I just need to know which "song" is the one they will perform in order to see if i like so i go and buy the ticket

sorry if i use a wrong vocabular in music, i am so bad :(

The Fauré Requiem is made up of 8 separate sections, numbers 1-8 in your screenshot.

By itself, it wouldn't be long enough for a full concert, or a CD, so there will usually be some other shorter pieces as well. I guess the listing you're showing from Spotify is of a specific CD. So, if you're checking the piece out, to see if you want to hear it live in a concert, you should listen to numbers 1-8.

Personally, I love the piece - I've heard it and sung in it several times, and I can't get tired of it.

    Just for supplement: a requiem is the musical part of a specific mass for the dead, and just like in a normal mass, there are several occasions (marked points in liturgy) for music. – guidot Mar 14 '16 at 10:38
  • Good point @guidot - I think Fauré's choice of movements for this requiem is said to be an individual choice, rather than standard for a requiem. But the piece was very personal to him, I believe connected with the death of his parents. – Angst Mar 14 '16 at 18:48
