Refreshingly unconventional in its form, Requiem includes movements that set texts by legendary writers like poet Emily Dickenson, hymn writer Fred Pratt Green, and theologian, Dietrich Bonhoeffer. Written for and premiered by the choir of the Episcopal Church of the Good Shepherd in Austin, Texas, this epic work makes a lasting impression. Challenging yet accessible, Requiem can be done in its entirety as a concert work or segments can be extracted and used in various settings. Suitable for church, community, or school choirs alike, a performance of Requiem will be a rewarding experience for all those who listen.
