Requiem, a song, music and text by Eliza Gilkyson, the last track on the album Paradise Hotel, Red House Records(2005).
Eliza Gilkyson wrote "Requiem" as a song of grief following the Asian tsunami in December 2004. Now, after Hurricane Katrina's devastation of the Gulf Coast region, this song is finding its way to listeners and can be a song of prayer and comfort. The singer-songwriter explains how "Requiem," from her album Paradise Hotel, became a "vehicle for grieving."
