Notes & Reviews:

'For my money, remains the finest recorded version of this lovely work in any of its guises ... strongly recommended' (Gramophone)

'The perfect team of soloists, a glorious sound from both choir and orchestra, a faithful re-creation of the score, and that special something which takes us beyond the notes on the page and creates an atmosphere which best fulfils Duruflé's vision of what a Requiem should be ... everything about this performance is lovingly done and enhanced by recorded sound of demonstration class ... I can think of few other choral recordings that are as consistently successful and uplifting as this' (BBC Music Magazine)

'A wonderfully sympathetic performance... a heavenly, visionary effect which is amazingly satisfying' (BBC Record Review)
