For All The Saints: Duruflé Requiem
November 4, 2018 @ 5:00 pm - 7:30 pm$15
The featured work is the “Requiem (Mass for the dead)” by Maurice Duruflé (composed in 1948), a really strikingly beautiful work. It is all based on the original Gregorian Chant setting of the text, over which Duruflé layered lush orchestral and choral arrangements. It’s an ingenious way of honouring tradition – and celebrating All Saints and All Souls in Hallowe’en week!
The University of King’s College Chapel Choir directed by multi-Grammy-winner Paul Halley offers their tenth annual concert honouring those who have gone before, this year featuring the famous Requiem by Maurice Duruflé (1948), with chamber orchestra and guest organist Patrick Wedd.
