Requiem

for Chorus, Soprano Solo, Chamber Orchestra & Organ

Mr. Ramsey’s Requiem sets the traditional Latin mass for the dead. It is intended to be a liturgical work, but is also at home in a sacred concert setting. The music stands in the traditions of Duruflé and Fauré, but is different from both. Two performances prove it to be within reach of non-professional, church choirs, making it a good choice for community and/or college groups as well. Response has been very positive from both listeners and performers alike.

Professionally prepared performance materials are available from the composer, including rehearsal tracks on CDs for each vocal part, conductor’s score and instrumental parts. Please inquire through [email protected].

BENEDICTION was written in February-March of 2013 for my friend Keith Haan upon his retirement as Director of Choral Activities St. Ambrose University. The “threefold blessing” seemed perfect for the occasion as we gathered to wish our colleague well on his way. I used the latin text because I wanted that elevated sound those open […]

This light-hearted holiday song was commissioned by a local community chorus, one of whose members wrote the words. I was asked to include a part for children’s choir, and I understand everyone enjoyed taking part. It has a simple message – to chase away the gloom, and spread light and happiness to all at Christmas […]
