Temporary Requiem is a mass for dance – the music score to “Known Mass. No. 3: St. Maurice.” A collaboration with dance maker and choreographer Ann Glaviano, it utilizes heavily dissected and altered passages of the traditional Latin requiem mass as the accompanying text across 6 movements. As the mission of “St. Maurice” is to build and break down a lost church over the span of the performance, the music serves to help transport “the congregation” to this dreamworld.
