The Requiem, composed by the British composer John Rutter, is a musical setting of parts of the Latin Requiem with added psalms in English, completed in 1985. Four of the movements were first performed at Fremont Presbyterian Church, Sacramento, California on 14 March 1985, and the first performance of the full work was at Lovers' Lane United Methodist Church, Dallas, Texas on 13 October 1985. The composer conducted both of these performances. The first movement is an Introit and Kyrie, and then follows Out of the Deep based on Psalm 130, and the motet Pie Jesu. Next comes the lively Sanctus (with the Benedictus) and the Agnus Dei. The sixth movement is Psalm 23, often sung at funerals in the Anglican church, and the Requiem concludes with Lux aeterna.
