My REQUIEM was liturgically celebrated on May 15th 1993 at Southwark Cathedral, London. It was written as a visceral response to the grim swathe of AIDS which has touched almost everyone I knew at that time, one way or another. The Cathedral was packed and next to me sat my partner Mike, himself infected with HIV and recovering from radiotherapy. He was gravely ill but managed to be at my side for this monumental service at which he took his first, and last communion. I shall never forget the response after he had consumed the body and blood - "Will I be alright now?" I answered yes. He died on August 15th that year with his family and friends at his bedside and, yes, as a Christian, I truly believe that he is alright now.

This recording is dedicated to him and to all those who live under the shadow of HIV. Since the advent of AIDS, untold number of gay men have died, but overwhelmingly the problem is rooted in the Third World, much of the globe being affected still greatly. This recording is one of a myriad of efforts by the community to raise awareness for funding in the HIV and AIDS field. In buying this CD you contribute to those deep and worthy coffers for which I am personally grateful.
