John Rutter: Requiem

This is a more intimate version of John Rutter's Requiem, which uses smaller ensembles, enhancing the sense of reassurance that the music and the text offer. Rutter's music is almost always warmly tonal, built with a simplicity in its textures that descends from the tradition of Vaughan Williams. Here, frequently only one or two instruments are used for accompaniment. This, when added to his use of unison voices or only one or two sections of the choir, and his avoidance of extreme animation, is what makes the music so uncomplicated, and, therefore, comforting. The darkest moments of this work, in the Agnus Dei, are not frighteningly dark, but rather, shadowed, and those shadows disappear by the end of the movement.
