Messe de Requiem composed by Andre Campra (1660-1744). For Soli ST(A)TBarB, SST(A)TBarB/SST(A) Choir, 2 Flutes, 2 Violins, 2 Violas, Bassi, Basso continuo. This edition: Paperbound. French Sacred Music. Score available separately - see item CA.2100400. Requiem; Mourning, death. Vocal score. Language: Latin. Composed 1695. 64 pages. Duration 50 minutes. Published by Carus Verlag (CA.2100403).With Language: Latin. Requiem; Mourning, death.The Requiem was composed during Campra's tenure as the director of music at the cathedral of Notre Dame. It was commissioned for a service in memory of the deceased Archbishop of Paris. At the end of the 18th century it became a tradition in southern France to perform movements of Campra's Requiem during funerals or at memorial services: There is evidence from as late as 1805 which verifies this practice. The scoring of this work is remarkable, in that it calls for four groups of performers: a five-voice "Grand Choeur," a 2-3 voice "Petit Choeur," three vocal soloists as well as an instrumental group designated as a "Symphonie.".
