Quick Overview

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.
