Dies Irae

Day of Wrath

for SSA Voices and Piano

David Smith (composer)


  • Soprano 1
  • Soprano 2
  • Alto
  • Piano


Employing the text from the Requiem Mass, D. Farrell Smith's dramatic, exciting, rhythmic piano accompaniment propels the angular melodies, many of which are unison, forward. The contrasting, lyric B section allows for a brief respite and will challenge the singers to explore color in tone and expression. Sure to be a compelling piece to program for many concert or festival performances Also available for Three-Part Mixed Voices (CM9351).
