Requiem Opus 9
- Durand S.A. Editions Musicales
Drawing heavily on the plainsong chant tradition, Durufle composed his crowning work in 1947 for mixed chorus, with mezzo-soprano and baritone soloists. He included three accompaniment options, ranging from organ alone to full orchestra. It is a meditative work that is equally compelling on the concert stage or in the church sanctuary.
