Requiem for the Living
A Requiem, at its core, is a prayer for rest- traditionally, for the deceased. The five movements of Dan Forrest's Requiem for the Living, (2013), however, form a narrative just as much for the living, and their own struggle with pain and sorrow, as for the dead. The piece develops as a plea for deliverance and peace, becoming a response to this redemption. The work portrays light, peace, and rest- for both the deceased and the living.
