The Gold Coast Concert Chorus (Elizabeth Helms, director) joins the Ventura College Chorus and Singers (Brent Wilson, director) for two performances of Maurice Duruflé’s sublime Requiem. One of the most beautiful choral pieces ever written, the Requiem pairs flowing Gregorian chant with the lush, sumptuous harmonic language of 20th-century France. Duruflé’s intensely personal take on the requiem mass remains his largest and most performed work. The piece will be paired with Jocelyn Hagen’s Renaissance-inspired contemporary favorite, The Notebooks of Leonardo da Vinci. Composed to honor da Vinci’s remarkable legacy on the 500th anniversary of his death in 2019, the work is set to text from his notebooks, which draw on themes of art, science, nature and technology.
