Sacred Masterworks: Lauridsen + Duruflé

Rounding out its first year with Jason Sabino, the Chorale presents two of the most iconic masterworks for choir and organ: Maurice Duruflé’s Requiem, Op. 9, and Morten Lauridsen’s Lux Aeterna, both featuring renowned organist Dan Miller. The Requiem is based on themes from the Gregorian funeral mass, with luxuriant harmonies for the choir, a haunting cello line, and stunning solo pieces. 2017 marks the 70th anniversary of the Requiem’s premiere in 1947. The Lux Aeterna for choir and organ premiered in Portland 20 years ago.

Response to Strife: Górecki’s Miserere

​In times of turmoil, music grabs the soul and lifts it to a place of strength and enduring hope. The powerful songs in this concert express the pain of hardship and the convictions and prayers that get us through. This program features Henryk Górecki’s Miserere, a 35-minute a cappella work dedicated to those who suffered from political oppression in 1980s Poland. The Chorale also performs works by Eliza Gilkyson, Dominick DiOrio, Norman Luboff and more. Join us for an emotional and, ultimately, uplifting musical experience.
