introduction

The many young soldiers who fell in World War I deeply affected Herbert Howells, yet his Requiem primarily exudes hope. The reassuring voice given to death inspired the American composer and Pulitzer Prize winner David Lang. He fashioned five love poems from Schubert’s imposing body of Lieder into the moving cycle Death Speaks.
