Requiem For George
Yesterday, realising that we were going to that event in the evening, I decided to familiarise myself a bit with what we were in for. So I threw myself into the interwebs, and thus the penny dropped about why the venue chosen for this event was a Catholic Church. It was to be a performance featuring Duruflé's Requiem.
Well, as long-time readers of this blog would know, on a good day I'm an agnostic and on a bad day I'm an atheist, so when I saw that I was in for an evening of listening to liturgy and funeral music in a Catholic Church, I went nuts. At first. And then the second penny dropped.
Last Wednesday, George, a friend, passed away. What better way to reflect on the memory of George than during a Requiem Mass designed to assist the spirit's passage to the eternal light.
Æternam habeas requiem. May you have eternal rest, George.
