Director’s Notes, Robert Russell: Many choral aficionados give Maurice Duruflé’s “Requiem” pride of place on a Top 10 List. Deeply refreshing Gregorian melodies receive Duruflé’s special harmonic treatment in a work that ChoralArt has not sung in more than a decade. Two of my favorite Britten works join the “Requiem” on the program: the expansive “Festival Te Deum” and the deeply intriguing “Rejoice in the Lamb” on a text by Christopher Smart. Organist Randall Mullin brings his special touch to the magnificent instrument at St. Luke’s Cathedral.
