ABOUT THIS CONCERT
Gerald Finzi’s In Terra Pax is a serene juxtaposition of text by Robert Bridges (which are set for the baritone soloist) with the familiar Christmas passage from St. Luke (set for the soprano soloist and chorus). Written just two years before Finzi’s death in 1956, In Terra Pax is a deeply expressive musical narrative that is a terrific opener to our winter choral programme.
Maurice Duruflé’s Requiem is an exceptional blend of modern and medieval. This twentieth century piece, completed in 1947, draws nearly all its thematic material from Gregorian chant. The final of the nine movements, In paradisum, offers a sense of peace.
RUN TIME: 80 minutes with intermission
With Professer Emeritus Dr. John C. Dressler presenting scans of the original manuscript of Gerald Finzi's In Terra Pax.
