Trinity College Cambridge performing the Durufle Requiem during the early days of the Covid pandemic, hence the masks and the unusually wide spacing of performers.

Don’t much like the organ accompaniment. The original orchestral backing works better to my ears.

OK, it aint classical but it belongs here I guess - - - - and how I love the look of startled indignation on the faces of all those would be upper-class twits. ‘But my dear, they weren’t even wearing hats'

And this sure aint classical but I can’t resist dumping this version here :-

OK, let’s dive in off the deep end - - - -

In the twilight

Through adversity and joy
We've gone hand in hand;
We rest now from our wanderings
Upon this quiet land.

Around us slope the valleys,
The skies grow dark;
Two larks alone are just climbing,
As if after a dream, into the scented air.

Come here and let them whir past,
For it will soon be time to rest;
We do not wish to get lost
In this solitude.

O wide, quiet peace,
So deep in the red dusk...
How weary we are of our travels --
Is this perhaps - Death? --


To my ears though the ultimate performance was Elizabeth Schwarzkopf’s recording. The orchestra holds together better, probably because mult-mikes weren’t used.
