A new Requiem by David Halls was premiered in November 2017 at Salisbury Cathedral.

Halls, who is the Cathedral's director of music, has spend three years composing his English Requiem. He describes it as 'an intimate work that reflects personal loss, and a personal response to the Cathedral's acoustics and its close-knit community, where life and death are marked by music.'

The work's intimacy partly comes from the use of Anglican chant, which is interlaced with Psalms (much as Howells and Walford Davies did in their Requiems), and Halls has used parts of the Requiem selectively to enhance the personal vernacular of the work. Halls wanted the work to be 'modest, to reflect the everyday and the kind of music sung in Salisbury daily–this is the reason it is "English" and in English.'
