Choir presents “Requiem”

At 2:30 p.m. on Feb. 8, the public can enjoy a free performance of Maurice Duruflé’s Requiem by the Mercyhurst College Concert Choir. The choir will present the concert in the Christ the King Chapel at Mercyhurst College.

Requiem, Duruflé’s most frequently performed work, is based on plainchant with melodies that date back to the first centuries of Christianity. The work includes two baritone solos and one soprano solo. The Carpe Diem Chorale will perform Antonio Caldar’s Stabat Mater during the same program. This very short baroque composition is rich in texture and contrasts small ensembles and solos with the full choir.

While the concert is free and open to the public, a free will donation for the college choir tour fund will be taken at the end of the program.
