  1. Requiem for the Homeless? Why have I never heard of this before? Possibly because I don’t attend a Catholic church. Since I have never heard of it before, I am suspicious that it some kind of recent invention. However, you don’t seem to be a fadist, maybe it’s a real thing.

      Frank LaRocca is a real deal composer, not a fad at all.
