Will Todd
A setting of the Latin text from the Roman Missal, Requiem is the opening movement of a larger work entitled Songs of Peace, which was written in 2012 in memory of the composer's mother. Todd's gently chromatic, but undaunting, harmonic language combined with the powerful and personal text makes for a very effective piece, suitable for general performance as well as at sombre or memorial occasions.
