These two evocative works are rich with feeling and allusion. The Music Makers is woven with musical references to many of Elgar’s best-loved works – Enigma Variations, The Dream of Gerontius, the two symphonies and Violin Concerto.  Duruflé based his haunting Requiem on themes from the Gregorian mass, floating over rich and fluid harmonies.
