Director and documentary maker Ellen Blom collected life stories from Utrecht citizens, to create a Requiem. A Requiem as a goodbye to hardship, to celebrate life and inspire others. 2017 was the first edition, with 8 works by 4 Dutch composers, with the Netherlands Kamerkoor and Insomnio Ensemble conducted by Ulrich Pöhl.
2019 brought the second edition in which Monique Krüs participated. She wrote Onrust, the Offertorium in the Requiem and Karma is een Bitch! as the Sanctus.
