Great Choir: Durufle's Requiem & Four Motets
TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 21, 2017
7:30 PM – 9 PM
The Duruflé Requiem has firmly obtained its place in the choral canon after that of Gabriel Fauré, which was performed as part of this series in 2013. The composer based his work on the Gregorian chants for the Mass of the Dead. It is truly a quintessential reflection of early 20th century Parisian liturgical musical culture. Consoling and transcendent, the textures of organ and orchestra support the singing of these two choirs within the context of the Cathedral’s Great Choir.
Kirsten Sollek, contralto
