“Will Todd is fast establishing himself as one of the UK’s most sought-after, versatile composers. . . [Requiem is] his most impressive, well-structured, ‘agonized-over’ work to date . . . well worth many more performances from ambitious, enterprising choirs.”
As part of his 2021 Youtube series, Will Todd talks to guitarist Thomas Gray and conductor Ralph Woodward about the commissioning and development of his 2009 Requiem for Voices and Electric Guitar.
