About

Requiems is a funerary ritual that, in the course of six traditions and sacred languages, invites us to enter into eternity.

The Requiems are an invitation, an introduction to rest, to the intangible peace that inhabits the depths of life. A Requiem ought to help us go beyond thought and enter into the rest of the non-mental.

Is there a sound, a frequency, a rhythm, a voice that might help us live this? Such could be the function of a Requiem: those who listen to it, by the grace of sound, would enter into this non-space-time, this non-mental and would thus be in communion with the one or with those who have just given their last breath.

This album is released simultaneously with Requiem by Jean-Yves Leloup published by Editions du Rene (October 2018).

Reviews

Though I was familiar with the name of Jean-Paul Dessy as a conductor and cellist, this is the first time I have heard his music. Requiems sets a series of texts taken from a number of different religious traditions, all of them dealing in some way with the end of earthly life. ... Performances are everything one would expect from the Estonians, under the secure direction of Risto Joost. The disc is rounded off by two pieces for solo cello, played by the composer himself.  Ivan Moody
