Performer Conductor Ensembles Composer

Notes & Reviews:

It is a unique case in music history for a composer to have dealt with the theme of dying and death on the basis of three very different texts: the classic subject of the Catholic Mass for the Dead (Requiem), a work best described as a Lutheran cantata drawing on German texts from the Bible and hymn stanzas, and a poem of his own authorship.

American Record Guide, November/December 2014
The Celebration of the Dead (Totenfeier) draws from a collection of Biblical verses, with added texts from Johan Agricola and other hymn writers. The Song of the Grave is a memorial to Philipp Spitta. The Requiem largely sets the once standard Roman Catholic liturgy. All the works are reverent and I have no doubts as to the sincerity or depth of the composer's feelings as he wrote them.
