Do not stand at my grave and weepfor mixed choir (SSAATTBB) a cappella
Text: English (attributed Mary Frye)
Duration: 2'00''
Difficulty: 2/5
Use: Memorial, Funeral, Remembrance

A highly effective and poignant setting of the famous memorial text by the young composer Ed Rex. This joins Rex’s "A hymn to the night" as part of the Boosey & Hawkes Contemporary Choral Series and is completely homophonic with sumptuous harmonies, perfect for a very special service or memorial occasion.

Composer's note
In 2009 I was asked to write a piece for the wedding of some friends of mine, and the resulting setting of Rumi’s This Marriage was my first published work. Do not stand at my grave and weep follows on from that as the second in a series for what are traditionally the three most important services of a person’s life. It is dedicated to my grandfather.

Ed Rex
Ed was a chorister and, later, a choral scholar in the Choir of King’s College, Cambridge, attending The King’s School, Canterbury in the intervening years. He has written for various groups, including The King’s Singers, VOCES8 and the Choir of King’s College, Cambridge, and has composed music for theatre in the West End. In 2012 he was commissioned to write a piece for the Edington Festival, Beneath the Cross, the first performance of which was broadcast on BBC Radio 3.
