Notes & Reviews:

Maurice Durufle, best known for his lovely 'Requiem' of 1947, was an extremely versatile musician. Along with Messiaen and Alain, Durufle's talents would help define the rebirth of the French organ school. Finesse, balance, and perfection were his quests as he composed sparsely and slowly, deftly combining polyphonic and symphonic textures with the use of chant and the Impressionist heritage of his forbears. Since 1991 Stefan Schmidt has been Cantor of the Church of St. Peter. In addition to his organ performances, he is also conductor of the Ars Cantandi vocal ensemble.
