Collin Mawby: Requiem of Hope
Requiem of Hope
Voice, choir and organ
olin Mawby's Requiem of Hope is a distinguished, mature work, displaying this composer's immediately recognisable style at its most approachable and impassioned.
Mawby uses the texts of the traditional Latin Requiem Mass but adds three English texts - a blessing by an unknown author and one each by Henry Vaughan and John Henry Newman.
Requiem of Hope is scored for a soprano soloist, mixed voices (with divisi) and organ or small orchestra of strings, harp, two trumpets, organ and percussion. Performance time is approximately 35 minutes.(ISBN 9781840039108)
