Blessed are those who die in the Lord
Composed in:1999
Musical form:fragment
In memory of:Cardinal Basil Hume
Mawby wrote a piece especially for the Requiem of Cardinal Basil Hume (1923 - 1999)
The piece I wrote for Basil Hume's requiem was a responsorial psalm: Blessed are those who die in the Lord. The remainder of the mass was a mixture of plainchant, polyphony, and hymns. They also sang Faure's "In paradisum". A lot of this was to enable the congregation to join in the singing. The mass was attended by both the British and Irish Prime Ministers.
