On Sunday, April 30, 2017 the Duke Chapel Choir and Choral Society of Durham will present Berlioz’s Te Deum and Poulenc’s Gloria. The performance, directed by Dr. Rodney Wynkoop, will take place at 4:00 pm in Duke University Chapel on the Duke campus in Durham.
Hector Berlioz’s choral and orchestral works explore the breadth of the human spiritual experience. His style explores the vast range of human emotion, taking singers from bombastic highs to quiet intimacy. His massive orchestrations echo the ecstasy of adoration and the blasts of Judgement Day. The Te Deum is no exception to this; this hymn of praise will fill Duke Chapel with expressions of humanity’s yearning for God. Berlioz’s work is joined by another work of exultation, Francis Poulenc’s Gloria. For this concert, the Chapel Choir will join forces with the Choral Society of Durham, as well as professional orchestra and soloists.
