Notes from the composer:

I wrote The South Hadley Mass; A Short Requiem for the Dead Violist in 2018. Written for four violas, it contains four elements of the traditional mass: Introit (Requiem Aeternum), Dies Irae, Libera Me, and Lux Aeterna. At only twelve plus minutes, this is perhaps the quickest overview of the most universal elements of the traditional concert mass; it was my intention that the music be short enough that it could be performed at funerals and memorial concerts as well. Every violist has at least four viola-playing friends, and as far as I'm aware, until this piece, there has been no music written specifically for deceased *violists*. The Libera Me can be excerpted from the mass and performed alone. I composed this work in my home studio in... South Hadley, Mass.
