Weiss, Sebastian: In Paradisum (SATB)


SATB and Piano or Jazz Quartet or Jazz Quartet and Strings. Vocal Score.
Standard: Moderate
6 minutes

Set to the Latin words from the Requiem Mass, In Paradisum creates a shimmering and magical sound, with its slowly rising melody and densely interwoven vocal line. The words: “May choirs of angels receive you” marks a grand climax to this piece. The coda surprises with a classic vamp, leaving room to an improvising instrumental soloist. This work is ideal for choirs looking to expand their repertoire into a more contemporary style – with just a hint of jazz.

Full score and instrumental parts available on request.

Note: This title was formerly published by English Philharmonia.
