On March 3, 2018, the Gay Men’s Chorus of Washington, DC presented the world premiere TTBB adaptation of the Maurice Duruflé Requiem. Critic Jamie McCrary of Washington Classical Review gave a rave review of GMCW’s premiere of the work, arranged and conducted by GMCW artistic director Thea Kano. McCrary writes,”This was a high-quality, artistically nuanced performance. The piece was beautifully interpreted and presented, a testimony to Kano’s artistic leadership, as well as strong contributions from organist Jeremy Filsell and the chamber string orchestra with trumpet, harp and timpani.”
