Saturday 16 November, 7:30pm - Carlisle Cathedral
Conductor: Mark Hindley
Organ: Fergal Caulfield
Duruflé’s Requiem is widely regarded as one of the great works of the 20th century, steeped in glorious harmonies and soaring emotion. It will be accompanied on the cathedral’s magnificent “Father” Willis organ of 1856, with its four manuals, pedal board and almost 4000 pipes. The programme also includes works for men’s voices only and women’s voices only, by composers Francis Poulenc (1899 to 1963), Franz Biebl (1906 to 2001), Pablo Casals (1876 to 1973) as well as music written by a very young Benjamin Britten (1913 to 1976).
