The Manhattan Choral Ensemble performed Maurice DuruflĂ©’s Requiem for organ & strings and a series of new works commemorating the Triangle Fire. Composers George Andoniadis, Victoria Bond, Ricardo Llorca, and Martha Sullivan set selections from Jonathan Fink’s sequence of poems “Conflagration and Wage: The Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire, 1911.” These were interspersed with the movements of the Requiem, creating a unique tribute to the victims of the 1911 tragedy.
