Abstract

Maurice Duruflé's Requiem is one of the most beloved of all requiems. Much scholarly discussion centres on Duruflé's supposed source(s) of inspiration for this work. The debate gravitates around his treatment of existing Gregorian chant melodies with one author even suggesting 'elegant theft'. This critical commentary makes a thorough analysis of this work and examines the role of Gregorian chant as the basis for composition.
