Item Number: NX.8559789

Randall Thompson's choral works retain the affection of American choral singers and conductors alike, and the Requiem is his masterpiece. Touched by the loss of close friends and colleagues, this work was Thompson's personal statement on life and death. Using carefully selected biblical scripture, it takes the form of a dramatic dialogue between two choirs. Recorded here for the first time in its complete form, this Requiem is an emotional and dramatically intense journey of conflict and resolution, and entirely unique within American music history or the requiem tradition as a whole.
