Gregory Spears’ Requiem was released in November and entranced listeners with a stunning album-length work. Period instruments, modern technique, and ancient storytelling co-mingle in Spears’ enthralling composition, leading, unsurprisingly, to an avid reception.
In the Boston Globe, John Guilfoil declared Requiem “some of the most beautifully unsettling music to appear in recent memory”, describing it as “a Renaissance madrigal remixed for the postminimalist age”.
Requiem has also received coverage and listings from the Sacramento Bee, Time Out New York, and WCKR.
