Spring Concert with Epiphany Choir, Orchestra and Joseph Adam, Organist
A Celebration of the music of Maurice Duruflé (1902-1986), among the most important French composers of the 20th century.
The Program: Messe ‘Cum Jubilo’ for tenor and bass voices with organ; Solo Organ Works; and Requiem.
The Requiem was completed and published in 1947 and dedicated to the memory of the composer’s father. The work will be performed by Epiphany Choir, soloists Kathea Yarnell and Martin Rothwell, string orchestra, and organ. Nearly all the thematic material in the work comes from Gregorian chant melodies from the Mass for the Dead. This opulent and mystical work is among the most-performed early 20th century masses.
The Requiem will be offered as a memorial to family and friends of Epiphany Parish; names as requested will be listed on the program.
