The inspiration for my Missa Pro Defunctis (2018) was Fauré's Requiem in which he ignored the "fire and brimstone" text of the Dies irae and Tuba mirum in the Sequence of the Requiem Mass.  And consequently he created a work that is peaceful, tranquil and uplifting.  I'd like to think of death in that way.

So, I proceeded by taking the exact text that Fauré used in his work, and instead of a large chorus and full orchestra I decided to do a chamber version.  It is scored for SATB (single voices), flute, clarinet, string  quartet, double bass and harp.

The movements, as in the Fauré, are:

1. Introit and Requiem
2. Offertory
3. Santus
4. Pie Jesu
5. Agnus Dei
6. Libera me
7. In paradisum

The entire work has a duration of ca. 29 minutes.

Missa Pro Defunctis (2018) is dedicated to the "residents" in the Protestant Cemetery in Rome.
