Duruflé Mania

I missed choir last week due to illness, but I was happy to be back today, particularly since both of our pieces were by Duruflé.  During the Offertory, we sang Ubi Caritas.

Here's the Chor of King's College Cambridge....


Then, during Communion we sang Duruflé's Notre Pere.

Here's the Ensemble Vocal de l'AVP singing at l'Église Saint Merry (Paris 4e):


These pieces are stunning in their harmony and forward movement, and are a joy to sing.  While I'm excited to be travelling to England in the next couple of weeks, I'm sorry to not be singing with the choir over the Easter weekend.
