This 8-minute work, set entirely in Latin, recounts King David's grief at the death of his son Absalom. Opening with a fiery piano introduction, a solo tenor emerges from the echoing keyboard clusters, followed by a mournful choral response. The music then moves into a molto agitato Dies irae, with angry dissonance and mixed meters, eventually resolving into a peaceful and tranquil Requiem aeternum. A powerful and dramatic work for advanced ensembles! Duration: ca. 8:20.
