Commissioned by the Hickory NC Choral Society for their 35th anniversary season. Scored for mixed choir with solos for boy soprano and/or mezzo-soprano, soprano and tenor, the instrumentation is available for large orchestra or chamber ensemble. Combining both liturgical and non-liturgical texts, in some cases the traditional texts are slightly re-arranged for contextual emphasis. This powerful five movement work projects a wide range of meaningful expression from a biting essay on the vanity and pain of existence, to a plea for mercy, and a celebration of eternal light. The work stands alone – but would be especially moving for all saints, Good Friday, or even Palm Sunday.

    I have listened to the River Tree Festival performance of this Requiem on YouTube at least 30 times, and still continue to listen to it several times each week.If you are a choral director, please add it to your repertoire, as it richly deserves to become part of the...

    American choral tradition.It has rich harmonies, nice variety, a powerful Christian message, and brings tears to many listeners (read their comments on YouTube).
