'Requiescat' by David Childs was commissioned by the NZSSC in remembrance of Lois Coplon, who had a long and close association with the choir for many years.

For the commission, Childs chose to set the famous poem by Christina Rosetti called 'Remembrance'.

Performed by the New Zealand Secondary Students Choir as part of their 2014 'World on a String' programme and recorded by Radio New Zealand Concert at the Wellington Cathedral of St. Paul's on 26 April 2014.
