From Edward Lein's MISSA PRO DEFUNCTIS ("Mass for the Departed," 1991), the PIE JESU DOMINE is a setting of the traditional Requiem text for soprano solo, chorus (SATB) and organ, with oboe & harp.<br> <br> From the composer...<br> "My mother, Marzell Martin Lein (1922-1980), remains the kindest and most loving person I have ever known. I had been toying with the idea of composing a Requiem, and on March 15, 1990, the 10th anniversary of my mother's death from cancer, I sat at my piano and wrote this 'Pie Jesu'. It took me about a year to finish the rest of the mass, 'dedicated to victims of terminal illness, in memory of my mother,' and it was first performed in 1991 by the Riverside Presbyterian Church Chancel Choir, Jacksonville, Florida (Andrew Clarke, organist and choirmaster), with members of the Jacksonville Symphony Orchestra." <br> <br> The movement was later arranged as the 3rd movement in ELEGIES IN D MINOR, for soprano solo and SATB chorus with piano and obbligato flute, oboe or violin; and it is also available as a solo for soprano with piano and obbligato.<br> <br> The full score and parts are freely available at https://leinmachine.blogspot.com/p/music-recordings.html#MISSA_PRO_DEFUNCTIS <br> <br> <br> Please notify firstname.lastname@example.org if performing any of the movements.
