The Requiem, composed specifically as an act of worship and remembrance rather than as a concert work, dates from 1988-91. In the composers words, it is a modest attempt to express in sound a deep feeling of supplication to God for people who died in this [20th] century of violence.
The Missa brevis was written in response to a request by the Headmaster of Buckfast Abbey School for a musical work to mark the Feast of Our Lady of Buckfast in May 1985. Father Sebastian Wolff has been a monk at the Devon Monastery of Buckfast since 1948 and has dedicated his life to its ongoing work and worship. His duties as organist to the community in its regular cycle of prayer and liturgy, and the undeniable beauty of the Abbey church, have both over the years inspired the creation of his music.
