The music of the Messa da Requiem combines religious grandeur with operatic drama and passion, and contains equally exquisite writing for both chorus and soloists. It is notable for its emotional depth and variety shown, for example, in the terror of the 'Dies Irae', the dignity of the sorrowful 'Lacrimosa', the anxious pleading of the 'Libera me' and the spirited 'Sanctus'. The work is performed by the University Music Society’s Philharmonic Orchestra and Chorus, with guest soloists.
