Cape Fear Chorale: Cherubini's Requiem

Apr 18, 2015

Larry and Libby Oldham are both singers with the Cape Fear Chorale and had many interesting things to say about the spring performance, Requiem in C Minor by Luigi Cherubini.  Larry Oldham earned his DMA in Church Music, so he had a deep knowledge about this music and the history-for instance, which great composer requested this Requiem for his funeral, and why the church banned this music.  We also hear about the fall concert in this informative interview. 

A Sunday Baroque Weekend, featuring special guest Suzanne Bona of Sunday Baroque, was a huge success. Thank you to every listener who attended one of the lively events. We were fortunate to host such distinguished and talented guests, and it was a privilege to bring these special musical and cultural events to our listeners. We hope you enjoy the above live music (beginning at 5:40) recording and interview with WHQR's very own Jemila Ericson. 

Watch for more special live classical music programming from WHQR in the future.
