Requiem - VII. Confutatis Maledictis

Recommended Posts

This is a repost of the Confutatis movement of a Requiem, I have been working on for quite awhile.  I made some minor changes in the orchestration, mostly in the second half of the piece.

The first half is written as a simple, mournful canon intending to depict those condemned to the "flames of woe" resigned to their fate as their punishment is carried out.  The second half is intended to depict angels descending from heaven, represented by the tremolo strings, to comfort those who have been saved by their contrition.

I'm not normally a canon fan. but this was very well done. Is this a recording or an exported file?? Good quality sound with actual lyrics, thank God. I'm glad it didn't stay on "A" too long, and developed to the subdominant. Some of your parts, especially the strings, might get a little bored sometimes, but I get that sometimes the interest of the piece comes first.

Very good work!
