Event Description

John Rutter’s Requiem will be presented in a Service of Evening Prayer at St. Paul on Saturday, March 28. St. Paul's Kantorei and the Diamond Star Ensemble (harp, strings, winds, and brass) will collaborate for this special evening. Soloists will include Patricia Scanlon and Tyler Schlesselman. Rutter's Requiem is a musical setting of parts of the Latin Requiem with added psalms and biblical verses in English, completed in 1985. Five of its seven movements are based on text from the Latin Requiem Mass, while the second movement is a setting of "Out of the Deep" (Psalm 130) and the sixth movement is an anthem “The Lord is my Shepherd” (Psalm 23) which Rutter had earlier written. The first movement combines the Introit and Kyrie, the third is Pie Jesu, with soprano solo. The central movement is a lively Sanctus, followed by Agnus Dei and finally Lux aeterna. In the Agnus Dei and Lux aeterna, Rutter combines the liturgical Latin text with English biblical verses.
