Award-winning ‘RoQuiem’ is an exciting work for choir and orchestra/band, written for young performers - whether they are experienced or inexperienced. Full of vitality and irresistible melodies, this piece will delight singers and audiences alike.

'RoQuiem' is arranged for full orchestra (see list below), but may equally be performed with a smaller group of instruments. The piece may also be performed by choirs using the backing tracks, although the inclusion of a live guitarist is recommended, as lead guitar is featured widely throughout. (The audio files include a live concert performance, as well as instrumental backing tracks both with and without guitar.)
