In the pierced heart of the Crucified, God's own heart is opened up--here we see who God is and what he is like. Heaven is no longer locked up. God has stepped out of hiddenness.
~Pope Benedict XVI
Thanks for this post. I love Duruflé, and have not heard this piece before. His variations on gregorian themes are beautiful. My wife and I used both the plainchant Ubi Caritas and the Duruflé variation at our wedding.
