About

The choral works of Duruflé, like his organ works, are small in number but beautifully crafted. Frequently written and rewritten until he was completely satisfied - he was a composer who rethought and re-configured his music right up to the moment he had to let go of it.

Often described as a man out of step with his times, Duruflé’s pieces look back to Gregorian chant and plainsong at a time when the musical life of his home city of Paris was steeped in radical new compositional ideas - a testament perhaps to Duruflé’s enduring love of France’s choral heritage.

In a new recording produced by Grammy-winning producer Blanton Alspaugh, the Houston Chamber Choir are led by artistic director Robert Simpson on their first release with Signum Records.
