Eternal Light: A Requiem is arranged for an accompanied mixed voices choir with soprano, tenor and baritone solo options. It is by the award-winning British composer and internationally acclaimed broadcaster, Howard Goodall, and is a stunning new Requiem for the modern day. It is intended to provide solace to the grieving, reflecting on the words of the Latin Mass by juxtaposing them with poems in English. Speaking about the work, Howard Goodall said, "For me, a modern Requiem is one that acknowledges the unbearable loss and emptiness that accompanies the death of loved ones, a loss that is not easily ameliorated with platitudes about the joy awaiting us in the afterlife. This, like Brahms', is a Requiem for the living, addressing their suffering and endurance, a Requiem focussing on the consequences of interrupted lives." Goodall's fresh and unorthodox interpretation of the Requiem Mass was released on EMI Classics, performed by Christ Church Cathedral Choir, Oxford and London Musici conducted by Stephen Darlington with soloists Natasha Marsh, Alfie Boe and Christopher Maltman.
