The composer Ritz Rakotomalala has composed this "Requiem" : a work for four mixed voices a cappella.
Requiem is the introductory part of a complete work entitled "Coronation of the Poor".
Dark, tortured then appeased, the piece is humble and without excess. The composer thus chose to make it an a cappella prayer.
It begins with the voices of men reminding us of the humility and simplicity of the human condition in an existence strewn with hazards from which it must extricate itself.
The women's voices then bring an ounce of light to the room, but it is the darkness that eventually brings the lament to an end.
Duration : 4'30''
Creation by Ritz Rakotomalala for 4 mixed voices choir a cappella (SATB).
