mpetition (ICCC Japan) 2016.
This is lyrical requiem composed by Matthew Lyon Hazzard who

inning of the song, like a quiet morning air, gentle and com
fortable sound will slowly take you to a light, towards the
middle of the song. Layers of LUX in 3 bottom voices, and li
ke light shines on, 2 voices of soprano is very beautiful. M
aybe music that gives you floating and glowing impression, g
ive you a message of spirits are not falling into an eternal
sleep but really resting in peace. Suitable for a last song
of a religious stage at the concert.
