 A ''joyful'' Repose October 20, 2015 By owen  ryan (lakewood, CA) See All My Reviews "I recently met the composer at my local bookstore's coffee shop where he was tapping away at his computer working on a composition. I learned he taught composition and was Dean of the College Of The Arts at CAL STATE UNIVERSITY, LONG BEACH. Out of curiosity I ordered this CD. I think of Requiems being rather somber since they are for the repose of the recent deceased's soul. But, hey, why can't there be joy about the soul leaving the mortal coil behind? This Requiem seems to me to be as much about rejoycing as lamenting. It begins with an optimistic melody and although it has its somber moments it is almost celebratory. Professor, if I've got this all wrong I apologize. In any case, I enjoyed this piece and found it to be nicely recorded. The only fault I find is its $19- price for 38 minutes." Report Abuse
