Notes and Editorial Reviews

This is a highly interesting work which draws on Western and Oriental traditions. Requiem is a mass for the souls of the dead set to texts in both Latin and Japanese, highlighting the cyclical nature of life, death and rebirth. The work is performed by a chamber orchestra, two choirs, soprano soloist, incidental harp, percussion and shakuhachi (Japanese flute), incorporating a Western melodic style with ethnic and world music elements - the trademark of Karl Jenkins.
