Hymnus Paradisi is composed for SATB chorus and orchestra with soprano and tenor soloists, and is characterised by an extraordinary depth and power. The text includes lines from the traditional Latin Requiem along with lines from the Anglican burial service, as well as the texts of Psalm 23 and Psalm 121. Because of the personal nature of the composition, Hymnus Paradisi remained unperformed until 1950.
This vocal score includes a piano reduction of the orchestral score.
