Overview

(BH Large Choral). (2004, 55 minutes) Karl Jenkins' Requiem sets the traditional Latin text of the Requiem mass, including the extra movements included by Faure and Durufle Pie Jesu and In paradisum . These are interspersed with haiku "death" poems (sung in Japanese) whose delicate, epigrammatic texts provide a peaceful commentary on the liturgical words. The result is a deeply moving expression of spirituality, whose musical tying together of different cultures provides a link that is highly appropriate to the modern world. This powerful book will appeal to choirs wanting to sing an unusual but appealing and effective piece: the full scoring of the work includes a part for Japanese flute (shakuhachi) and an array of unusual drums.
