Faubert has composed some thirty works; all of them are tonal pieces, and most have been broadcast on radio or television in Canada and France. At the request of the Alphonse Leduc publishing firm in Paris, he wrote a suite for flute and piano intitled Du fleuve à l'Arctique (1983). His catalogue includes several religious works, among them a Magnificat for brass orchestra, two organs, percussion, soprano, and choir; an Ave Maria; Messe du peuple de Dieu (Laudem 1990); a Messe de la Saint-Jean-Baptiste (1985), and Hymne symphonique du 150e; these works were commissioned by the archdiocese of Montreal, and the latter was premiered during the celebrations commemorating the 150th anniversary of the founding of the Montreal diocese in 1986. Founding director of the choir of the Orchestre métropolitain (1986-7), he created in 1987 the Mont-Royal Symphony Orchestra and choir, ensembles he continued to conduct in 1991. His work Osmose for percussion and tape (1977) was recorded by Robert Leroux and Pierre Gauthier (RCI 570).
