An evening of French reflective music by two of the 20th century's greatest, if not most revolutionary, composers.

Maurice Durufle's Requiem, largely  modelled on the titled work by Gabriel Faure is based on the plainsong tradition. It is a work of great emotion and features an ecstatic climax during the Sanctus which must rival anything in the choral repertoire. Durufle was fiercely protective of his music and burnt many manuscripts but his works in this concert are clearly from the pen of a master.

Francis Poulenc achieved a greater fame in his lifetime though his Litanies which open this concert are a deeply personal work composed in less than a week. This is the first piece of religious choral writing completed by Poulenc for three-part female voices and consists of a sequence of prayers to Mary.

SCCS in rehearsal at the Auden Theatre

Written in 1802, after the success of its big brother The Creation, it has suffered in the intervening years from a libretto translated from English to German and back to English and the loss of much piquancy in the text as a consequence. It has now been re-released with an English libretto much closer to the original allowing Haydn's humour, wit and musical genius to be shown at its finest.

In order to enjoy the fine location of the Auden Theatre on what we hope will be a fine summer evening ticket holders are invited to picnic on the lawns between the theatre and the new Music School prior to the concert. The bar will be open from 6.30 pm.
