“I fear I am writing a requiem for myself.”

W.A. Mozart

One of the most common questions I get is why I chose to name my website, social media, and everything with me tagged in it these two words: “Sun Requiem“.

To answer that, I have to go back to ninth grade, where I led the soprano section, played in the orchestra, and performed the Faure Requiem in the Wangfujing Cathedral with the rest of the Dulwich College music department.

That was the first time I had ever heard of the word. I joked to my friend, when I die, I don’t want someone to write me a song, I want them to write me a requiem! Perhaps many of you don’t even know what a requiem is.
