Haydn Nelson Mass Duruflé Requiem
Haydn’s Mass was performed in 1800 in the presence of Nelson, during his triumphant tour through Austria
following his defeat of Napoleon’s forces at Aboukir Bay. Duruflé’s sublime masterpiece developed from a
projected series of organ meditations on the traditional plainsong melodies of the Requiem Mass; although
similar in shape to Fauré’s famous setting, its musical language is highly original and richly expressive.
