02 November 2017 - Eucharist for All Souls' Day

Recorded on
Thursday, 2 November 2017

This week's webcast is of the Eucharist held on All Souls' Day, which commemorates All Souls, the Holy Souls, or the Faithful Departed; that is, the souls of Christians who have died. The setting of the Requiem Mass is Maurice Duruflé's monumental Op. 9, published in 1948. This work takes as its thematic basis the Gregorian plainchant melodies of the Church's earliest literate musical traditions, which in turn serves to embody the continuity of the Church throughout the ages through its communion with those Faithful who have gone before.
