Commissioned on February 23, 1957 by the University of California and completed in March of 1958, this work is not a liturgical Mass. It is a Requiem cast in the form of a dramatic dialogue between two SATB choruses depicting the triumph of faith over death. The performance time is approximately an hour if one honors the composer's wish for a two-minute pause between each of the five parts.
