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 titeled work by Gabriel Faure is based on the plain song 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.

Auden Theatre, Holt
Sheringham and Cromer Choral Society and orchestra

David Ballard conductor

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.

Tickets £15 (Under 18's FREE) from Auden Theatre Box Office 01263 713444 or online at
