Requiem For The Living

 
Released: 1984 Composer: Forrest, Dan 
Arranger: Forrest, Dan 
Author/Lyricist: Traditional 
Voicing: SATB with Soprano and Tenor Solo

 Commissioned by the Hickory NC Choral Society for their 35th anniversary season. Scored for mixed choir with solos for boy soprano and/or mezzo-soprano, soprano & tenor, the instrumentation is available for large orchestra or chamber ensemble. Combining both liturgical and non-liturgical texts, in some cases the traditional texts are slightly re-arranged for contextual emphasis. This powerful five movement work projects a wide range of meaningful expression from a biting essay on the vanity and pain of existence, to a plea for mercy, and a celebration of eternal light. The work stands alone - but would be especially moving for all saints, Good Friday, or even Palm Sunday. Movements: Introit - Kyrie Vanitas Vanitatum Agnus Dei Sanctus Lux Aeterna 3 instrumentations available on rental only: 1. Full orch.
