Post "Pie Jesu"
I bought a Sarah Brightman CD the other day and one of the songs she sings is "Pie Jesu". I know that Webber wrote it, but I can't find anywhere online what show he wrote it for. Does anyone know?

What seperates Webber's Requiem from that of another composer? Also, what constitutes a Requiem?

A Requiem is a death mass. sung at funerals and memorials. ALW wrote his as a memorial for his composer father. William L. Webber.
