Misa de Requiem a 8
Period:Classicism
Composed in:1798
Musical form:Missa pro defunctis à 8 vocibus inaequalium
Text/libretto:Latin from the Missa pro Defunctis
As far we know and examined in the sources this Missa de Requiem consists out of the following traditional movements:
- Introito Requiem
- Gradual Requiem aeternam, in memoria
- Secuencia Dies Irae
- Offertorio Domine Jesus
- Sanctus Sanctus y Benedictus
- Agnus Dei Agnus Dei
- Communio Lux aeterna
This Misa de Requiem a 8 is set by Jaime Ferrer for double choir in coro spezzato style for SSAT (TpTpAT) coro I and SATB (TpATB) coro II with figured basso continuo.
From the gradual "Requiem aeternam" only the verse "In memoria aeterna" has been set to music.
For the “Dies Irae” only the first five verses are set in polyphonic style. That means in the performance of the Sequentia you could alternate with the verses in coro and some soloists could sing the other plainchant verses. The verse “Hostias” of the Offertorio has not been set polyphonically, also you can perform the belonging plainchant version.
The score of this Misa de Requiem a 8 consists out of the following parts:
1st chorus treble (6 f.), 1st chorus 2nd treble (6 f.), 1st chorus alto (6 f.), 1st chorus tenor (6 f.), 2nd chorus treble (4 f.), alto 2nd chorus (4 f.), tenor 2nd chorus (4 f.), bass 2nd chorus (4 f.), contrabaxo (4 f.), figured basso continuo (4 f.).
