According to an announcement the feast of All Saints shifts our thoughts and prayers to those who have gone before us. The church’s two adult and children’s choirs will combine to make a total of 100 singers performing Maurice Duruflé’s “Requiem,” accompanied by the Cathedral Collegium Orchestra.
Music Director at St John’s Cathedral, Timothy Westerhaus said in a press release, “This concert is born from a desire to celebrate our common ground and share in a common cause.”
At the event Dean Bill Ellis and a member of Lourdes’s clergy will offer an invocation of welcome and a sending blessing. The nine movements of the “Requiem“ will be separated by selections of poetry and readings accompanying the traditional Latin text of the Requiem Mass. Also included will be selected poems and readings.
The performance will be at the 3 p.m. at St. Johns.
