Exeter Cathedral - Exeter Festival Chorus Choral Concert

About

Saturday 18 November 2017 at 7.30pm in Exeter Cathedral

with


Erlöserkirche Chor (from Exeter’s twin German city, Bad Homburg), director Susanne Rohn


Rebecca Smith, mezzo-soprano
Julian Rippon, baritone
Andrew Millington, organ

Nigel Perrin, conductor

 

We present two great works for voice and organ: the well-loved Requiem of French composer, Maurice Duruflé, written in 1947, and the Mass in D by Anton Dvořák, composed in 1887.

Considered by many to be his masterpiece, Duruflé’s Requiem is based on Gregorian plainchants used in the Mass for the Dead and was conceived as a memorial to his father.
In Duruflé’s words it “reflects the anguish of man facing the mystery of his last ending.”

Dvořák’s Mass in D is the only one of his several masses that still exists. It was conceived for an intimate space and occasion; it is both lyrical and reflective of Dvořák’s love of nature and his confident belief in ultimate redemption.


Running Time - approximately 1 hour 50 minutes (including 20 minute interval)
