Saint Thomas Aquinas Catholic Church, 6306 Kenwood at Abrams, Dallas 75214
Experience an evening of deeply spiritual music in the warm resonance of a candlelit Saint Thomas Aquinas Catholic Church. One of the greatest choral works of the 20th century, Maurice Durufle’s masterpiece “Requiem, Op. 9“, brings us into the Lenten season, performed in the instrumentation for organ and cello, with concert organist Scott Dettra. The program will also include S.S. Wesley’s “Thou Wilt Keep Him in Perfect Peace” and Judith Bingham’s “The Darkness is No Darkness“, a choral fantasy based on Wesley’s anthem. Rounding out the evening are a cappella motets: Gregorio Allegri’s soaring “Miserere Mei, Deus” and Ivo Antognini’s lush “Lux Aeterna“.
