Requiem Mass Introit

Clare has done all the hard work committing to paper what we were taught last Saturday.

I would add that what with the black vestments, a catafalque and unbleached candles, the emphasis Mode 6 places on fa and la; a major third came as a revelation.

I don't care if people in the past heard major thirds differently, I live now and I like major thirds.  What I'm looking at is horrifying enough, so music that is solid, simple and hopeful provides a welcome counterweight.
