Picture of A recording of Jil Bartley's Requiem, made in Krakow, Poland during the Summer International Festival in 1997 Artist: Anna Colls, Alison Pearce, Crakoviensis Choir and Orchestra and Jil  Bartley (conductor)

Jil Bartley writes -
"In the year 1993, composition reintroduced itself to me. I had a real desire to write a choral work using the text of the Latin Requiem Mass.

I began to sketch a piano score, then the following year (1994) I moved to Southern France.

Once installed at Tourrettes sur Loup, the work poured out and a piano/choral Score of Requiem was completed in 1996.

Although the latin text from the Requiem Mass has been used for this work, it is in no way a sad or miserable musical expression!

On the contrary, it is full of joy and is a celebration of the 'Ascension' rather than the 'Death'."

Requiem has been performed widely in Europe. It received its UK premiere at Arundel Cathedral in 2006.
