New setting of the Requiem
  • My Episcopal Choirmaster pal and I are looking for a new setting of the Requiem in the style and length of the Faure or Rutter. For performance, not for Liturgical use. We want one with a small instrumental ensemble, not full orchestra and/or organ accompaniment.

    There has been some discussion here amongst the Episcopalian musicians for commissioning one by the Diocese in honor of a beloved musician who recently died.
    Would be interested in hearing from the composers on this site- I know it isn't strictly Gregorian, but I thought you might have something like this or know of one. Not that Wilberg thing,tho'. :)
