      Maurice Duruflé¹s beloved Requiem has been an audience favorite since its
      first performance in 1948. It is based on the Gregorian chants used in the
      Mass for the Dead, and actual chant melodies are interspersed throughout its
      nine movements. Duruflé¹s work emphasizes tranquility, rest, and peace,
      although it includes moments of deep passion.

      Felix Mendelssohn composed his exciting, double chorus, twelve-movement Te
      Deum when he was only 17. This rarely performed, surprisingly mature
      composition pays homage to a number of composers and styles, including Bach,
      Handel, Mozart, Giovanni Gabrieli, and music of Baroque Venice. It also
      expresses the pure beauty and joy of Mendelssohn.
