Kreek's work is the first Requiem based on an Estonian text (he later added a Latin text). Eduard Tubin, one of the most important Estonian composers of the 20th century, showed his esteem for this Requiem: "No other work of Estonian music in this genre can reach the depth of expression of Kreek's Requiem.".
