Saturday, March 9th, 2024
7:30 PM to 9:30 PM

Peter Butterfield conducts the Victoria Philharmonic Choir in this choral masterwork, a setting of the traditional Mass for the Dead, which sets centuries-old Gregorian plainchant in the rich harmonies of mid-20th century French organ music.

The concert features guest organist Robert Quinney who will also present two solo works: Duruflé’s Scherzo and Francis Pott’s Toccata. Mr. Quinney began playing the organ at age ten, and is the Director of the Choir of New College, Oxford.

Soloists in the Duruflé Requiem are: Hillary Tufford (mezzo-soprano) and Louis Dillon (baritone), with Brian Yoon, Principal Cello in the Victoria Symphony.

Other choral works on the program are Duruflé’s Four Motets on Gregorian Themes, and Cantique de Jean Racine, by Gabriel Fauré.

This concert is presented in partnership with Christ Church Cathedral, with the generous support of the CRD Arts and Culture Support Service.

Doors will open by 7 pm.
