Weiss, Sebastian: In Paradisum
SATB and Piano or Jazz Quartet or Jazz Quartet and Strings
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 are available on request.
