David was thrilled to lead the chorale in the Requiem by Maurice Duruflé. This is one of the truly great choral masterworks of the twentieth century, and it was the first time the chorale had performed it. The program included the Four Motets by Duruflé, the Cantique de Jean Racine by Gabriel Fauré, and Shenandoah arranged by James Erb.
