A good choral piece for today—with a wrenching cello part on the second song. The version I have was recorded by the Cambridge Singers and the City of London Sinfonia in 1998. Wear headphones. The car is a terrible substitute concert hall; I tried.
Even if you haven’t heard it:
John Rutter's Requiem I read the news, and I wish I played the cello. Words won't do, to walk beside the suffering of this world. Although: Out of the deep have I called unto thee O Lord. That's pretty close. If I could wield the bow beneath those words, I could bend to them. Without all this breaking.
I sang the Requiem once, a long time ago now. It was a choral festival, and none of the participating choirs had practiced it together until the day of, so it was a little weird. Also it was unforgettable. The cello in particular. It was such an effort not to somehow try to sing along to the cello part. It always is.
