Maurice Duruflé in 1956

Mauritius Duruffle was one of the best French organists of his time, a professor at the Paris Conservatory for decades and a composer so perfectionist that he published less than a dozen works. One of them was his gorgeous Requiem which he created in 1947 and then continued to refine until 1961. Based on Gregorian chants for the Requiem Mass, it’s today’s noon to 2:00 p.m. masterpiece.
