Princeton University Glee Club: Duruflé Requiem
The Princeton University Glee Club performs Duruflé's Requiem, conducted by Mariana Corichi Gomez '21 with organist Eric Plutz.
At the beginning of September, the Princeton University Glee Club was devastated to learn of the passing of one of its recently graduated members, Daniel Granberg ’19. This upcoming performance of Maurice Duruflé’s Requiem is dedicated to Daniel’s memory as one of several musical tributes involving the singing community at Princeton. Daniel was a four-year member of the Glee Club, as well as the Chamber Choir, Chapel Choir and the a cappella group Roaring 20.
The performance comes exactly fifty years after Duruflé himself paid a personal visit to Princeton, to work with local choirs including the Princeton High School Choir, and to conduct a performance of the Requiem with Marie-Madeleine Duruflé at the organ. For this anniversary performance, the Princeton Masterworks Chamber Orchestra joins the Glee Club and University Organist Eric Plutz, with Glee Club Associate Conductor Mariana Corichi Gómez at the podium. Soloists are Princeton students Marley Jacobson ’22, soprano, and Kevin Williams ’22, baritone.
The performance will be followed by an informal community sing of the 'Dona Nobis Pacem' from JS Bach’s Mass in B Minor - which Daniel once described as his favorite choral experience at Princeton.
