The Jacksonville Children’s Chorus invites the community to join together and remember the lives affected by the Covid-19 pandemic.
The memorial will feature the works of Requiem, Op. 9 by Maurice Duruflé performed by JCC’s Concert & Touring Choirs, Voices of Jacksonville and the Jacksonville University Singers. This beautiful Requiem was composed in the 20th century with material taken from Mass of the Dead in Gregorian chant. Duruflé’s Requiem is often described as “achingly beautiful” reflecting anguish in the form of Christian prayer. The memorial’s repertoire, under the direction of JCC’s President & Artistic Director Darren Dailey, was selected to help provide solace rather than invoking fear for the lives lost.
