Taken from Karl Jenkins' major choral work, Requiem, a setting of the standard Latin texts alongside five Japanese haiku poems, Pie Jesu is arranged for women's choir with piano accompaniment. Here are three evocative and contrasting Haiku settings for women's choir from this chart-topping piece of music by the composer of "Adiemus".
1. The snow of yesterday (Hona to mishi, Yuki wa kinouzo, Moto no mitzu) 2. From deep in my heart (Kolora kara, Yuki utsukushi ya, Nishi no komo) 3. Now as a spirit (Hitodama de, Jukuku sanjiya, Natsu no hara)
