Your Suggestions: A Requiem by Any Other Name
Thursday, August 11, 2011
For more than 500 years, Western classical music has used the requiem mass to bury the departed and console the living. Nearly 2,000 requiems have been written, to date — and that isn't even counting all the secular works meant to address the realities of death and mortality.
What piece of music do you think best commemorates a tragedy and provides some solace to the living — and why?
We'll include your selections in the Q2 Requiem Project stream during the upcoming anniversary weekend.
