This is a sensuous setting of the Latin text of the requiem mass already in its third printing. Malcolm Archer is a master of the choral idiom, writing marvellous melodies which lodge in the memory. His Requiem is scored for chorus, soloists and organ, and provides some forty minutes of fine devotional music.
Choir and Organ described Archer's Requiem as "simply splendid".
