John Rutter's setting of the "Requiem" for soprano soloist, mixed choir + orchestra or ensemble (with organ) - this edition has piano reduction accompaniment.
This is one of the best-loved and most widely performed choral works of the twentieth century. The texts, in Latin & English, are from the Missa pro Defunctis, the Book of Common Prayer, and the Psalms. The seven sections form an arch-like meditation on the themes of life and death: prayers on behalf of all humanity, psalms, personal prayers to Christ, and in the central Sanctus an affirmation of divine glory.Orchestral material is available on hire from the publisher. OUP, 1986. Duration 40 mins.
