Requiem for Peace comments by Fred Sjöberg
 



I had the privilege to direct the European premiere of this powerful work by Larry Nickel.


Requiem for Peace is something very unique that brings the whole world together in a feeling of compassion and a cry out for Peace in the world. The music is beautiful, stunning and challenging in style and variation and languages. The chamber version has an instrumental setting that makes this piece, together with the choir and the soloists, sound marvelous. I do recommend this piece to my conductor colleagues all over the world. Let us use this great music as a tool for World Peace!


Fred Sjöberg, conductor



comment from one of Fred’s altos:


This music, in combination with all the lyrics, has touched my inner core in a way that music has never touched me before. And I’ve been a choral singers since I was twelve. Now I’m fifty three!
