Knox Church in George Street.
City Choir is pleased to present the South Island première of Anthony Ritchie’s "Lullabies", composed in 2015 for soprano, adult and children’s choirs.
It is a cycle of six songs to poems by Dunedin-based poet Elena Poletti.
Maurice Duruflé’s "Requiem", first performed in 1947 at the end of World War II, was dedicated to the memory of his father. Duruflé’s "Requiem" is calmer and more meditative than some other settings of the requiem. The beautiful Pie Jesu movement has the only solo for the mezzo-soprano.
