EDITORS’ NOTES

Timothy Hamilton’s Requiem, written to commemorate the centenary of the outbreak of WWI, draws on influences including Verdi, Fauré, Bruckner and John Rutter. The result is a powerful work that expresses the sadness, anger, regret, and contemplation of the war and its aftermath. A short prelude sets the scene before a succession of heartfelt movements mourn the fallen. The ninth movement, “Lest we forget,” is a prayerful orchestral interlude before a lone soldier, baritone David Stout, intones the stunning “Pie Jesu,” a plea to God for eternal rest. The peaceful “In paradisum” concludes the work with music of radiance.
