Maurice Duruflè Requiem Op. 9 (1947) dedicated to his father in memoriam. The Requiem is Maurice Duruflè greatest and most imposing work. He received the commission for it from his publisher while he was still at work on a Suite for organ. The movements of this Suite were based on Gregorian melodies, and were ideally suited for further expansion and transformation into a Requiem Mass of respectable dimensions. The Requiem of Gabriel Faur undoubtably served as a model for this work. The choice of texts is identical (largely consisting of portions of the Liturgia Defunctorum), but Durufl introduces a break between the Introit and Kyrie, and also between the Lux Aeterna and Libera me. The result is a Requiem in nine movements, whereas with Faur there are no more than seven. ….. Messe cum Jubilo Op. 11 (1966) dedicated to his wife, Marie-Madeleine Durufl. Interest in Gregorian chant underwent a real renaissance during Durufls youth– the activities at and surrounding the abbey of Saint Pierre de Solesmes played an essential part in this, but that is another story– and this interest can be sensed, as it can in the Requiem, in the Messe cum Jubilo. The indication cum iubilo is the subtitle of the 9th Kyriale of the Mass ordinary as it can be found to this day in the Graduale Triplex (Solesmes 1979). In contrast to the Requiem, the powerful melodic line of this mass is left unaltered in each of the five movements, in the sense that the harmony, which seems to spring effortlessly from the modal character of the melodic progression, is left completely to the orchestra or organ.
