Melodic, deeply moving, quietly powerful and intensely beautiful.
Sparse vocal harmonies and soaring cello lines are woven into rich tapestries of sound.
Highly accessible to choirs and audiences, Requiem can be performed by amateur choirs with a limited budget and modest resources (accompanied by just organ and cello), while larger choirs can add parts for string orchestra and timpani to great effect.
"A valuable addition to the 21st Century choral repertoire" Sir Neville Marriner
"Mesmerising. The choir all felt very special to be a part of this glorious music" Robin Stubbs
"Rex Tremendae stays powerfully in my memory for its controlled build-up to the shattering, yet unexpected climax leading to the most exquisite conclusion" Simon Dunbavand
"A most beautiful thing... I find myself entranced by the openness of this music" Paul Carr
