Music to Die For: Duruflé Requiem
Acclaimed organist Jan Kraybill joins the Spire Chamber Ensemble in the virtuosic setting of the beloved Requiem by Maurice Duruflé. One of the greatest choral works of the 20th century, Duruflé’s setting is both gentle and disturbing, passionate and becalmed – a beautiful and ultimately uplifting response to the text of the Requiem Mass. Additionally, we will give the world premiere of a new work by Zachary Wadsworth and honor great modern day choral composers who are no longer with us as we perform Sir John Tavener’s Song for Athene (made famous by its performance at the funeral of Diana, Princess of Wales) and Stephen Paulus’ The Road Home. Join us as we remember our loved ones through songs of transcendence, inspiration and uplifting beauty.
