Requiem for the Living

Product Number: HL8763247

Publisher: Hinshaw Music

Medium: Octavo

Voicing: SATB

Format: SATB

Composer: Dan Forrest

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 and 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.
