Duruflé's Requiem - Perth Symphonic Chorus 2019
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. This work will be the highlight in a concert that will include Duruflé’s unaccompanied Gregorian motets and Fauré’s anthems for harp, organ and choir.
