About This Performance

Labadie, a natural to conduct French choral music, brings his choir for two of the most beautiful and comforting settings of the Requiem Mass in existence. In Duruflé’s case, the composer took his country’s strong tradition of Gregorian chant and married it to the liquid harmonies and lush orchestrations of his compatriots Fauré and Debussy.
