In Paradisum

Classical riches and 20th century tranquility abound in tonight's concert from the RLPO. The quiet depth of Duruflé's Requiem is paired with Mozart's Kyrie and Symphony No 39.

Classical riches and 20th century tranquility abound in tonight's concert from the RLPO recorded at Philharmonic Hall in Liverpool. Duruflé's Requiem, written just after World War II, has a quiet depth that stays with you. No wonder it is a favourite of choirs everywhere. It is paired with one of Mozart's few sacred works, his Kyrie in D minor, and his substantial Symphony No 39.
