Sean Baugh, artistic director:

This is an AIDS Requiem Mass that pairs the traditional Latin Requiem Mass movement texts with English texts that describe the stages of grief (Anger, Denial, Anger, Bargaining, Depression, Acceptance, Hope). Movement six, “I Shall Miss Loving You,” really can stand alone when excerpted from the larger work as a lyrical and poignant piece for any type of memorial occasion. The piano reduction works fine, but use an orchestra if you have access to one. The composer, ironically and sadly, died of AIDS before he could finish the work. His copiest, Anne Albritton, finished the work.
