Steeped in tradition, based on the liturgy of the Requiem Mass, I tried to bring my own style and voice to the centuries-old texts, using choir, orchestra, full band and electronic production.
Using the liturgy directly in some cases, basing songs on the text in others and using the text as inspiration in a couple of cases also, I took the 9 texts and wrote a 6 movement piece that is meant to be consumed as a whole, not in parts.
So enjoy the next 26 and a half minutes. I hope this speaks to you at some level, whether you believe the same as I or not. The goal here is to allow the musical soundscape to paint a picture of beauty and reverence.
