Alex Freeman: Under the Arching Heavens: A Requiem for mixed choir


Freeman’s Requiem (2018) was commissioned by the Helsinki Chamber Choir to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Finnish civil war in 1918. Structured around the Latin liturgy of the mass for the dead, the work has a duration of more than an hour and incorporates poems in Finnish, Swedish and English, reflecting both the specific reason for the commission and the universality of human suffering caused by war.
