255 Requiem

Down 11, to its lowest position since 2004. 1st of Rutter's 2 entries.

This seven-movement Requiem is traditional in its inspiration, using texts from the Requiem Mass and the Book of Common Prayer. The gloriously pure Pie Jesu is a real highlight — as is the Requiem Aeternam, which opens the work.
