4:00 pm
Spring Oratorio: Remember and Rejoice
Location: Duke Chapel
Duke Chapel Choir, Duke Chapel Vespers Ensemble, Duke Chapel Evensong Singers, and Mallarmé Chamber Players
As we conclude our 2021-2022 season, the Chapel's choirs join forces under the batons of all three Chapel Music conductors to remember those we have lost in the past two years, and rejoice in the promise of new life and resurrection. The haunting strains of the Kyrie from Messe Solennelle by Jean Langlais plead for mercy, while the familiar melodies of Gabriel Fauré's Requiem bring comfort. We rejoice in the resilience of creation with the poetry of Christopher Smart and St. Francis of Assisi, respectively, in Benjamin Britten's Rejoice in the Lamb and a newly composed setting of Canticle of the Sun. Face masks are required to be worn inside of the Chapel. Learn more about the university's public health measures: https://returnto.duke.edu/public-health-measures/ .
