The St. James’ Choir is joined by the Oculus Chamber Choir and Vancouver organist David Poon in a presentation of Maurice Duruflé’s luminous Requiem (Op. 9). Using the Gregorian plainchant melodies of the Requiem, which he clothed in contemporary harmonies, Duruflé created a harmonic garment which is both sumptuous and sober, a masterpiece of 20th-century composition. Duruflé was inspired by the shape of the Requiem liturgy; this is a rare opportunity to experience this transcendent work in this fitting liturgical context. For more info: 604–685-2532 |
