John Rutter's Requiem is a musical setting of parts of the Latin Requiem with added
psalms and biblical verses in English, completed in 1985. It is scored for soprano,
mixed choir and chamber ensemble or organ.

Five of its seven movements are based on text from the Latin Requiem Mass, while
the second movement is a setting of "Out of the deep" (Psalm 130) and the sixth
movement is an anthem The Lord is my Shepherd (Psalm 23) which Rutter had
written earlier.
The first movement combines the Introit and Kyrie, the third is Pie Jesu, with soprano solo. The central movement is a lively Sanctus, followed by Agnus Dei and finally Lux aeterna. In the Agnus Dei and Lux aeterna, Rutter combines the liturgical Latin text with English biblical verses.
