Not a very traditional Requiem, I know, it's rather more a desperate prayer to achieve the eternal rest. It is constructed after a thirteen notes row: Bb - Eb- E - C# - A - Ab - C - B - F - G - F# - C# - D, but the work is mostly tonal. Other important elements are the "Requiem tune": D - C - Bb - Ab, and the counter-melody that is first presented by the muted trumpet and, to the end, by the first violins. It's a very eclectic work, with a lot of contrasts and not always calm as a Requiem should be… At least it's very sincere music from an amateur. This is a slightly revised version which bears in mind very helpful comments by composer Hans Riphagen.
