Description

For soprano, bass, mixed chorus and orchestra. Lyrics from the death mass and by Bengt Pohjanen in English translation by John Hearne.

Fredrik Sixten: When my dear friend Patrik Runeke became seriously ill and died - only 37 years old - feelings and thoughts concering life and death overwhelmed me. It was natural for me to turn to Bengt Pohjanen, with whom I had collaborated earlier, to ask him to formulate:
  • words of anger and of gratitude
  • words of guilt and of forgiveness
  • words of consolation, of love and hope.
These words of Bengt’s, in combination with the classical texts from the Latin Requiem Mass, form a kind of testament to mankind’s yearning for unity and perfection. In the final movement, In Paradisum, this yearning is borne forth to the God whom Bengt describes as being: Wisdom deep and loving. Stronger than death.
