Quick Overview

Requiem of Hope
Colin Mawby's Requiem of Hope is a distinguished, mature work, displaying this composer's immediately recognisable style at its most approachable and impassioned.

Mawby uses the texts of the traditional Latin Requiem Mass but adds three English texts - a blessing by an unknown author and one each by Henry Vaughan and John Henry Newman.

Requiem of Hope is scored for a soprano soloist, mixed voices (with divisi) and organ or small orchestra of strings, harp, two trumpets, organ and percussion. Performance time is approximately 35 minutes.

Colin Mawby (b.1936) is a prolific choral conductor and composer.His vocal writing is widely acknowledged to be masterly and his music inspirational. As a conductor, he has worked with the London Mozart Players, the Wren Orchestra, Pro Cantione Antiqua, the Belgian Radio Choir and the BBC Singers. He has been Master of Music at Westminster Cathedral, London, Choral Director at Radio Telefís Éireann (RTE) and artistic director of Ireland's National Chamber Choir. On his retirement from the National Chamber Choir in 2001 he was appointed Artistic Director Emeritus to the choir.
