Duruflé: Requiem

Elegant Theft: Duruflé’s Requiem
 
Duruflé’s Requiem, unbeknown to many audience members, 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 for the listener.
 
Smaller but no less beautiful offerings include his unaccompanied Gregorian Motets performed by Perth Chamber Choir, anthems for choir, organ and harp by Fauré, including the divine Cantique de Jean Racine, plus a solo work for harp.
