Nahoko Kakiage has been pursuing a female chorus recording since the days of "The Eccentric Opera". "Requiem" is her third album since she became a Solo artist.
The chorus work of this album is like syomyo (Japanese Buddhist chant) or Bulgarian voice. Orchestration with a magnificent strings like"BARBER'S ADAGIO FOR STRINGS".
