Chroma Chamber Choir and conductor Costa Simpson present a programme of choral music inspired by plainchant, featuring the sumptuous Requiem of Maurice Duruflé. The choir welcomes musicians Michael Stoddart (organ), Kate Sherwood (cello), Sam Downes (baritone), and Erica Sim (mezzo-soprano) to collaborate with this concert.
The programme presents both medieval plainsong and the works of composers who were inspired by its rich legacy. The a cappella Quatre motets sur des thèmes grégoriens of Maurice Duruflé are augmented with settings of the same texts by contemporary Norwegian-American composer Ola Gjeilo and the nineteenth-century Belgian-French composer César Franck.
