Dies Irae composed by Elliot Del Borgo. For concert band. Concert Band. FJH Concert Band. Grade 3.5. Score and set of parts. Duration 7 minutes, 34 seconds. Published by The FJH Music Company Inc (FJ.B1224).

This symphonic poem is based on a chant attributed to Jacopone da Todi (c. 1230'1306) and describes the day of wrath and impending doom, while asking for mercy and salvation. The opening, treated like a Gregorian chant, soon moves into a whirlwind of energy as a large battery of percussion adds to the bold statements in the brass and flourishes in the upper woodwinds. A substantial work for your next concert program.
