Notes & Reviews:
Never performed by the London Philharmonic Orchestra before, and rarely heard in concert at all, the 'Requiem' by Dvorak captured on this CD from a live concert seems a near-forgotten masterpiece. Dvorak scholar Gervase Hughes cites this work for four soloists, chorus and orchestra as one of the composer's finest sacred creations, 'a deeply moving expression of faith on the part of a composer whose religious conviction never wavered'. It's a conviction stamped through the composer's illuminating, fervent score.Notes & Reviews:
