Monmouth Civic Chorus May 2013 Concert - Durufle Requiem
First Presbyterian Church at Tower Hill
255 Harding Road Red Bank, NJ07701
The Monmouth Civic Chorus 2012-2013 season closes with Maurice Duruflé's exquisite Requiem, paired with Triptych, composed by Tarik O'Regan in 2005. Duruflé interpreted the traditional Latin mass for the dead as a vision of peace and harmony. New Artistic Director Dr.Ryan Brandau notes that Triptych "marries rhythmic, syncopated, jubilant passages with moments of stunning, ethereal tranquility. The music is at once accessible, haunting, and infectious." Karin Gargone of Neptune, a faculty member at Ocean County Community College and Music Associate at Toms River Presbyterian Church, will be the organist.
