Peter Siepmann, organ Teresa Pearson, mezzo Gregory Links, baritone Rosi Callery, cello Rebecca Hutter conductors Teresa Pearson David Lawrence RACHMANINOV Selections from the Vespers DURUFLÉ Requiem Rachmaninov’s All-night Vigil was written in 1915, in the midst of war in Europe and growing discontentment with the tsar in Russia. Strongly rooted in the choral tradition of the Russian Orthodox Church this deeply moving music was suppressed under Soviet rule. Duruflé’s Requiem, written after the destruction of WWII, is striking for its contemplative nature, the omission of the Dies Irae emphasises forgiveness and peace within the work. These two masterworks of the twentieth century choral canon will be interspersed with student instrumental works. Duration: approximately 75 minutes, no interval
