Maurice Duruflé’s Requiem transcends tacit categorical assignments, blending together modern musical and sacred historical elements in a deeply personal manner that continues to speak to listeners.
To help celebrate the inauguration of Plymouth Church’s beautiful new C.B. Fisk French-style organ, Choral Arts Northwest will reprise its 2015 performance of the Duruflé “Requiem” with organist Douglas Cleveland, mezzo-soprano Stacey Sunde, cellist Virginia Dziekonski, and the Jubilate! Young Women’s Ensemble from St. James Cathedral.
This special program will also feature works by beloved local Bern Herbolsheimer, kicking off a year-long festival celebrating the late Seattle composer’s life and music by many of the choirs of Seattle.
