Duruflé – Messe ‘Cum Jubilo’ for tenor and bass voices with organ
Duruflé – Solo Organ Works
Duruflé – Requiem
A Celebration of the music of Maurice Duruflé (1902-1986), among the most important French composers of the 20th century.
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.
This performance is made possible by the generous financial support of the Epiphany Seattle Music Guild. As a result, this concert is presented without charge.
