Butler’s Performance

I only caught the nail-biting final half hour or so of the Butler vs. Marquette basketball game. That was because I was watching another Butler performance. At Clowes Memorial Hall, the Butler Symphony Orchestra in collaboration with a number of other individuals and groups, performed several pieces: Michael Henson’s “We Didn’t See Them As Human,” Sergei Prokofiev’s Piano Concerto No.1, and Maurice Duruflé’s Four Motets and Requiem. The last piece is one of the most beautiful choral pieces of the 20th century. If you’ve never heard it, please give it a listen! Here is a YouTube video (not from tonight’s performance) with the opening parts:
