Remembrance Sunday: Duruflé Requiem

Tomorrow afternoon, the Boy and Girl Choristers with the Vicars Choral will be performing Duruflé's sublime Requiem in a devotional Remembrance Sunday performance, interspersed with readings of war poetry. Duruflé wrote, “This Requiem is entirely composed on the Gregorian themes of the Mass for the Dead… It is not an ethereal work which sings detached from worldly anxiety. It reflects, in the unchangeable form of the Christian prayer, the anguish of man facing the mystery of his last ending.”

Do join us if you can at 3pm in the nave of Wells Cathedral. Admission is free with a retiring collection.
