Fredrik Sixten says about his own work:
When my dear friend Patrik Runeke became seriously ill and died – only 37 years old – feelings and thoughts concerning life and death overwhelmed me. It was natural for me to turn to Bengt Pohjanen, with whom I had collaborated earlier, to ask him to formulate:
words of anger and of gratitude
words of guilt and of forgiveness
words of consolation, of love and hope.
These words of Bengt Pohjanen, in combination with the classical texts from the Latin Requiem Mass, form a type of testament to mankind‚a yearning for unity and perfection. In the final movement, In Paradisum, this yearning is borne forth to the God whom Bengt describes as being:
Wisdom deep and loving. Stronger than death.
