Dale Trumbore | How To Go OnMaurice Duruflé | RequiemAssociate Conductor Jenny Wong leads a performance of Maurice Duruflé’s beloved Requiem, the composer’s evocation of the essence of Gregorian style. This piece was a particular favorite of previous Master Chorale Music Directors, Roger Wagner and Paul Salamunovich, both contemporaries of the composer. Instilled with comfort, the Requiem leaves listeners with a lingering mood of hope. Dale Trumbore’s “secular requiem” How to Go On won the 2017 ASCAP Young Composers Award. A setting of poems by American writers Barbara Crooker, Amy Fleury, and Laura Foley, the piece finds beauty and release in the embrace of everyday life, ultimately offering up solace.Jenny Wong, conductor62 singers, orchestra
