Karl Jenkins, in his Requiem, blends together the traditional form of the requiem or ‘mass for the dead’ with a fusion of western and eastern musical cultures, topping the classical charts in 2005.
Jenkins incorporated other surprises in the work too, including the driving pulsating, even menacing, rhythmic force of the Dies Irae as well as extraordinary tender and ethereal sections culminating in the hauntingly beautiful In Paradisum.
The Choir with conductor Adrian King and the Choral Society Chamber Orchestra performed at Gregson & Weight’s Memorial Chapel, Buderim on Sunday April 22, 2018.
