Requiem aeternam
Musical form:fragment (Introitus et Kyrie)
Text/libretto:Latin mass
Label(s):FGLP 1021
A rarity in Klemetti's compositions is his Requiem, which is in latin. This work, which languished forgotten for decades, has an archaistic general tone and original use of melody, making it Klemetti at his best.
