Mary Lynn Lightfoot - Heritage Music Press
The traditional Latin text is set to a haunting melody in this reverent, deeply moving choral work. Composed in memory of the children who perished in the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing, it is easily singable by young choirs as well as more experienced school or church choirs. An excellent pronunciation guide/translation is included. At the close of the work, a whispered, murmured chant on "Dona Eis Requiem" echoes behind the vocal parts, creating a spine-chilling effect. Magnificent!
