Our concert, dedicated to the memory of those we have lost during the pandemic, is built upon two liturgies. For the first half, we began with the form of a Requiem Mass; these movements are from settings by Maurice Duruflé, Johann Kaspar Kerll, and Duarte Lobo. Around these we have woven arrangments of two German chorales: ‘Jesu meine Freude’ and ‘O Haupt voll Blut und Wunden’, the beloved Passion chorale. The second half is built upon Compline, the close-of-day service. Motets by Michael Praetorius, Thomas Tallis, John Sheppard, Pierre Manchicourt and others are bound together by the verses of the immortal chorale (best known for its appearance at the end of Bach’s ‘St. John Passion’) ‘Herzlich lieb hab ich dich, O Herr’.
