Description

Commissioned by William Owen and the Choir of Christ Church, Christiana Hundred, USA, the world premiere of this major choral work was given by the commissioning choir on 4 November 2007 as part of a Choral Eucharist at Christ Church. The first UK performance was given by the Choir of King's College, Cambridge, on Remembrance Sunday 2007 as the musical setting for a service in King's College Chapel.

The Requiem is subtitled A thanksgiving for life' and has Latin movements interspersed with settings of some wonderful poems by the mystical English poet, Thomas Traherne (c. 1636-74).

"The poems of Traherne are full of wonder at God's creation and the part that we play in it," says Philip Ledger. "For me, his joyful imagery ideally complements the more austere, but beautiful, Latin words of the Requiem." The piece begins with the birth of the soul and ends with its final journey to paradise.
