Notes & Reviews:

This is the first recording with The Sixteen and The Academy of St. Martin in the Fields and looks set to become the benchmark recording of this repertoire. The result of a brand new collaboration between two of the finest modern day exponents of classical music, this exquisite disc brings fresh lifeblood to Faure's peerless 'Requiem' and injects imaginative invention and poetic phrasing into two of Mozart's choral masterpieces. Recorded at the 2007 Mostly Mozart Festival at London's Barbican Hall, this disc reflects the unique live experience of a concert performance that captivated its audience.

BBC Music Magazine
The soloists form a well-balanced team, with Roderick Williams assured and expressive in his major solo in the Fauré, and Elin Manahan Thomas true in intonation and charming in gesture in 'Laudate Dominum'

The Independent
... the singers of The Sixteen evoked an unearthly expressiveness. Fauré once said: 'here it was as if we had stumbled upon some private memorial, and caught a haunting glimpse of paradise.
