Requiem (2018)

Written originally for the Exeter Chamber Choir and scored for double choir with soloists, piano, organ and timpani, this work received its first performance to a standing ovation in St David’s Church, Exeter (UK) in October 2018. A repeat performance was given a few days later in Ottery St Mary (Devon). In November 2022, the East Devon Choral Society performed the work in St Andrew’s Church, Tiverton.
