April 2019 – Duruflé & Lauridsen

Our spring concert will be on Saturday April 6th, 2019, 7:30 pm at Norbury Parish Church (London Road, Hazel Grove SK7 4RF).  Planned works are Maurice Duruflé’s Requiem, Morten Lauridsen’s Lux Aeterna and some crunchy organ music, that is currently a secret shared between our musical director and organist.
We dipped a toe into Lux Aeterna in last year’s singing day, and it’s a gorgeous work.  The Requiem is equally “romantic”, but in a different style with polyphony and themes reminiscent of plainchant.
