chorus, soprano, tenor, and baritone solos, organ, flute, brass instruments ad lib
in English; Commissioned by
the Aquinas Foundation of Princeton University; first performance during
memorial service for Robert F. Kennedy at Princeton University Chapel,
Lewin has written: "The impetus for writing this Mass for
the Dead came as I stood on the platform at Princeton Junction, amid a
crowd of silent onlookers, as the train bearing the body of Robert F.
Kennedy slowly rolled by on its way from New York to Washington. Vatican
Council II had recently decreed that services were to be conducted in
the vernacular, and thus this Requiem Mass was set to English words."
The Lord's Prayer from the Requiem is available separately, arranged for
either keyboard and solo voice, or keyboard and SATB chorus.
