Commissioned by Fairhaven Singers, this recording of Will Todd's Requiem was awarded 5 stars by Choir & Organ Magazine, and an 18 certificate by Aled Jones!
"Those who know Todd’s Mass in Blue will have encountered his synthesis of choral and jazz idioms, and his Durham Jazz Evensong continues that trend. However, his Requiem… represents a different and totally original fusion, in which the keening and wailing sound of the bass guitar suggests disturbing images of death, making a most effective foil to the choral textures. The climax of the work, the Agnus Dei and the In Paradisum, features a lengthy and impassioned guitar solo and an equally wide range of colour from choir and soprano soloist – an outstanding response to the text."Alan Bullard, Choir & Organ Magazine
