Requiem Mass


In stock

SKU: Requiem


This CD is Judge’s setting of the Latin Mass for the Dead. Written in 1975 but unrecorded until now, over 40 years later.

It features fifty voices from The Crouch End Festival Chorus, conducted by David Temple, a four-piece rock band, four trumpets, four trombones, orchestral percussion, and the voice of baritone, Nigel Richards.

Judge’s Requiem Mass is a major piece of symphonic, choral, rock music, and is one of his most significant achievements.
