Description: It took Frank Martin a long time to heed his deep-seated inner calling to write a Requiem: 'What I have tried to express here is the clear will to accept death; to make peace with it.' The Requiem was composed in 1971/72, Martin utilizes the whole bandwidth of orchestral sound and explores all opportunities for interplay among the vocalists, as well. Janácek’s setting of the Otcenáš, the Lord’s Prayer, is not a conventionally religious work, the composer being more interested in its social aspects than any theological musings. Leif Segerstam (conductor).
