And Treasures of Romantic Era France
Featuring Organist Dr. Juan Mesa – Maurice Duruflé’s Requiem has kept its place among the most-beloved choral compositions produced in the 20th century. “This Requiem is not an ethereal work singing of detachment from human concerns,” Maurice Duruflé observed. “In the unchanging form of Christian prayer, it reflects the anguish of humanity faced with the mystery of its final end.” Other works by Charles Gounod, Camille Saint-Saëns, Gabriel Fauré, and Maruice Duruflé.
