Requiem for the Living

“Requiem for the Living” is one of Dan Forrest’s proudest publications, and it was composed over a span of ten months in 2012. The piece has been performed in prestigious locations around the world, including Carnegie Hall in 2014.

A Prayer for Rest

“Requiem for the Living” contains five movements, each containing gripping texts and melodies. Traditionally, a requiem is a prayer for rest for the deceased. However, in Dan Forrest’s innovative work, this prayer becomes a plea for rest for those who are struggling through pain in this life. The music lends to the feelings of earnestness that are illustrated in the lyrics.

Peace & Hope

From movement to movement, one can feel the sincerity presented in this beautiful composition. The final movement, “Lux Aeterna,” is a satisfying end to “Requiem for the Living.” The lyrics offer a reminder of Christ’s words to the suffering: “Come unto me all ye who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” The ending offers peace and hope for the future.

Incredibly inspiring and uplifting, “Requiem for the Living” has been bringing hope to people around the globe, and it will continue to do so as long as the world has music.
