Duruflé Requiem

April 27 & 28, 2024

"I find this one to be one of the most deeply impassioned settings and most brilliant uses of all the old plainsong chants, that just creates a really magical and deeply, powerfully moving setting of the requiem text."

Immerse yourself in a musical experience that soothes and elevates the soul. Duruflé’s iconic Requiem transports you to a world of serenity through its lush harmonies, flowing melodies, and an enduring sense of tranquility. Experience the harmonious embrace of this masterwork along with works by Bach, Britten, Butler, and Brahms, performed by the San Diego Master Chorale with organist Martin Green, Canon for Music at St. Paul’s Episcopal Cathedral.

Join us for an unforgettable afternoon as we celebrate the enduring beauty of choral art and offer a serene escape through the power of music.
