Requiem presented by First United Methodist Church at First United Methodist Church, Colorado Springs CO


Presented by First United Methodist Church at First United Methodist Church

Requiem, Op. 9,  for Choir, Soloists, Organ, and Chamber Orchestra – by Maurice Duruflé  (1902-1986)

Inspired by and based on Gregorian Chant, Maurice Duruflé’s Requiem is a masterpiece for choir, soloists, organ and chamber orchestra. Duruflé’s exquisite orchestration is translucent and evokes an atmosphere of serenity with assurances of eternal rest and forgiveness for the departed. The composer dedicated his Requiem  to the memory of his father who encouraged his son’s musical talents from a very early age. Duruflé, often called “The Last of the Impressionists Composers”, was held in highest esteem as an organist, teacher, and composer whose exquisitely crafted music was out-of-step with the times in which he lived.

The performance on April 29 features First United Methodist Church Chancel Choir directed by James Steven Harter, with mezzo-soprano soloist, Valerie Nicolosi, and baritone soloist, Peter Tuff. Featured prominently is FUMC’s Principal Organist, Dr. Joseph Galema and the Chamber Orchestra comprised of professional musicians from the Springs.
