This gravely beautiful choral work, dedicated to a victim of the Lockerbie air crash of 1988, consists of five sections and provides only two of the traditional requiem texts - 'Kyrie' and 'Agnus Dei' - with the addition of 'In Paradisum' from the Order of Burial. In between these traditional movements come two other sections, one using Bede's paraphrase of Caedmon's Creation Hymn in Latin and the other an original Caedmon poem in the dialiect of 7th-century Northumbria.
