    By now, All Souls Day is behind us, and all harpists have returned home after a weekend of Faure, Rutter, Durufle, et. al. requiems.

    Thanks much for the warning. Might be a good idea to buy the recording now just in case. Also, I think you meant “Crossing the Stone.”

    Catherine,
    You’re correct!

    I’ve played the Faure and Rutter many times, but was just curious what the Durufle Requiem was like.

    Never played it, never seen it, but I’ve heard it. It’s very slow and melancholy. It has some lovely moments, but I’d say the biggest challenge will be staying awake.

    There is only one movement in the Durufle that needs serious attention–that’s the movement where the eighth notes kind of echo each other.
