Requiem is the third track in Halo 4: Original Soundtrack.

Overview[edit]

The track opens with low strings playing somberly before a kantele joins in with snippets, leading into a cascade of melodies with high strings accompaniments. They build up to a crescendo before strings return with a grand melody, which repeats before fading out with snippets of synth effects and kantele.[1]

Production notes[edit]

The track was one of the three ideas produced by composer Neil Davidge, after he was shown a concept art of Requiem, which he described as "a glorious alien vista with a singular, tiny, silhouetted figure in the foreground". Davidge's composition was then sent to fellow arranger/producer Alex Morgan, who further developed the track.[1]
