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 something crunchy that our musical director hasn’t vouchsafed to us as yet.
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.
