George Lloyd - Requiem - Audio Track
For Counter-tenor, choir and organ
George Lloyd's last work, completed a few weeks before his death.
This disc will be a compulsory acquisition for any Lloyd fan but it will also be lovingly appreciated by any admirer of the vocal music of Faure, Rutter or Holst. A lovely remembrance of a warm-hearted composer who wrote against the spirit of the times and whose music finally met success. His was a dazzling creativity that reached its apex in Symphonies No. 4 to no. 7 and the Pervigilium Veneris
Requiescat in pacem. Rob Barnett
