"Kim Andre Arnesen knows how to write a melody! His sense of musical line, combined with both sacred texts and modern poetry, creates a relevant and contemporary use of the ancient liturgies of the Requiem. Every movement has a beautiful and endearing melody that creates a strong emotional reaction in both the performer and the listener. It is destined to become a favorite for generations to come." review by: David F. Donathan - Artistic Director & Conductor, The Opus Chorale of West Virginia,
