BENT SØRENSEN & JOHANNES OCKEGHEM Requiem
"Sørensen doesn’t identify as a choral composer but this merging of his own work Fragments of Requiem with the Requiem of 15th-century master Ockeghem could have fooled many into thinking the opposite. Sørensen uses elements of Ockeghem and Monteverdi to underpin his own harmonically ‘smudged’ writing."
