5 pm – Gala Spring Concert with Epiphany Choir, Orchestra and Joseph Adam, Organist
A Celebration of the music of Maurice Duruflé (1902-1986), among the most important French composers of the 20th century.
The Program: Messe ‘Cum Jubilo’ for tenor and bass voices with organ; Solo Organ Works; and Requiem.
The Requiem was completed and published in 1947 and dedicated to the memory of the composer’s father. The work will be performed by Epiphany Choir, soloists Kathea Yarnell and Martin Rothwell, string orchestra, and organ. Nearly all the thematic material in the work comes from Gregorian chant melodies from the Mass for the Dead. This opulent and mystical work is among the most-performed early 20th century masses.
A reception follows the concert in celebration of Tom Foster and his June 4th retirement from Epiphany.
This performance is made possible by the generous financial support of the Epiphany Seattle Music Guild. As a result, this concert is free to all.
The Requiem will be offered as a memorial to family and friends of Epiphany Parish; names as requested will be listed on the program.
If you would like to memorialize a departed loved one in the program for the Requiem, please complete the form below and return to the parish office by May 14.
