Elegant Theft: Duruflé’s Requiem
Unbeknown to many audience members, Duruflé’s Requiem is not all his own work. His silent collaborators were the monks of the medieval church whose Gregorian chants he ‘stole’ to create a unique, spellbinding masterpiece. His contribution was to bathe these glorious melodies in the luxuriant harmonies of the Impressionists to produce a meditative and personal experience for the listener. This exquisite work will be the highlight in a concert that will include Duruflé’s sublime unaccompanied Gregorian motets and Fauré’s anthems for harp, organ and choir.
