Ubi Caritas - Durufle

I had to post this again. An impromptu performance at St. Paul's' Cathedral in St. Paul, Minnesota by the Lutheran College Collegiate Chorale. I think this just happened as the choral group was visiting the Cathedral and just decided, on the spot, to form a large half circle around the church and sing. Other than the singers, there are few people present. Their tempo for this work is slower than most choirs perform it which makes perfect sense in such a large empty space. The reverberation of so many voices would have gotten muddled had they sung it any faster. These singers' voices and phrasing fit together perfectly for the space. Their director must be a man go good heart and soul. I wish I could have been there.
