organWORX: Organ and Choir 

Sunday May 27, 2:00 p.m. - Knox in Parksville

The organWORX concert series finishes its 2017-2018 season with the beautiful Durufle Requiem featuring the Schooner Cove Singers. 

Dr. Elroy Friesen conducts this newly founded choir consisting of some of the best choral singers from Vancouver Island. Jenny Vincent, founder of organWORX, is the choir's accompanist.

The Requiem was first published in France in 1948. Composed by Marcel Durufle (1902-1986), the work suggests an air of peace and rest in a subdued, impressionistic style. Gregorian chants flow throughout the work. 

The remainder of the program highlights pieces by Canadian composers Timothy Corlis, Leonard Enns and Stephanie Martin.
