The Rockridge Chorale Concert Dan Forrest Requiem for the Living - Guest Tenor - Jinho Hwang
A magnificent, life-changing and heavenly
rendition of Dan Forrests famous masterpiece
Traditionally, a requiem is a prayer of rest for the deceased. The
five movements of Requiem for the Living form a narrative just as
much for the living and their own sorrow, enlightenment, and purpose.  
The Five Movements of the Requiem
1. The opening movement sets the traditional Introit and Kyrie
texts (pleas for rest and mercy) using ever-increasing
elaborations on a simple three-note descending motive.
2. The second movement, instead of the traditional Dies Irae,
sets scriptural texts that speak of the turmoil and sorrow that
face humanity, while yet invoking musical and textual allusions
to the Dies Irae.
3. The Agnus Dei is performed next (a departure from the usual
liturgical order) as a plea for deliverance and peace. It is
followed by the Sanctus, which becomes a response to this
4. The Sanctus offers three different glimpses of the heavens
and earth, full of Thy glory, all of which develop the same
musical motive: an ethereal opening section inspired by
images of space from the Hubble Space Telescope, a stirring
middle section inspired by images of Earth as viewed from the
International Space Station, and a closing section that brings
the listener down to Earth, where cities teem with the energy
of humanity.
5. The Lux Aeterna closes the work by portraying light, peace
and rest for both the deceased and the living.
