Requiem, a revered form of classical choral composition, has been notably crafted by illustrious composers such as Mozart, Faure, Brahms,and Britten. In this tradition, Charlotte Wang ‘24, inspired by these eminent figures, endeavored to compose one for herself. Her rendition stands apart from conventional Western requiems, which often invoke The Lord through choral passages. In contrast, Wang's choir embodies the alter ego of a deceased character, leading the listener toward a state of inner peace through the exploration and resolution of diverse life narratives. 

The libretto, written by Haoran Tong '23, introduces a novel perspective on death, intertwining elements from various cultural and religious beliefs, including Hinduism, Daoism and Buddhism. The performance is further enriched by a baritone solo from Patrick Spoor '23, who assumes the role of the deceased.
