    45th Annual Spring Oratorio Friday, April 20, 2018

    Durufle: Requiem
    Dr. Aaron Smith, conductor

    Requiem - by 20th-century French master Maurice Durufle, is one of the composer’s most cherished works.  Composed in 1947 at the end of World War II and based upon hauntingly beautiful plainchant, the elegantly restrained setting is unique among requiems.  Breaking away from the operatic and highly dramatic Requiem settings of Berlioz and Verdi, he instead focuses not on visions of hell and damnation, but on images of rest and peace.  

    Accompanying the Requiem will be additional sublime choral and orchestral works featuring the Women's Glee Club and Dr. Cindy Bauchspies.

    Join us for beautiful evening of music performed by the critically acclaimed USNA Men’s and Women’s Glee Clubs and the Annapolis Symphony Orchestra!
