Gregorian chant meets the sumptuous soundworld of 20th-century France in Duruflé’s setting of the Requiem Mass.
Young singers from across London, including choral scholars and former choristers of Temple Church, come together to perform this profound work.
Although the mood of Duruflé’s Requiem is largely contemplative, there are moments of fire and brimstone too – in which to savour the full force of Temple Church’s magnificent organ.
