Notes & Reviews:

Under the direction of Stephen Cleobury, The Choir of King's College, Cambridge and the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment present the first recording of Marc Rigaudière's reconstruction of the first complete liturgical performance of Fauré's Requiem. Their performance faithfully recreates the 1889 premiere, even using the same organ stops as those available at the Cathedrale de Ste. Madeleine in Paris. Baritone Gerald Finley and treble Tom Pickard are the vocal soloists. Also included are the Cantique de Jean Racine, heard here in its original version for choir and organ, and the Messe Basse for high voices, sung by the sixteen choristers of the choir.

American Record Guide, January/February 2015
The performances are excellent and would make a logical choice for anyone wanting men and boys in these pieces. If you want the Rigaudiere edition, this is your only choice. For the traditional concert version the old Cluytens (with De Los Angeles and Fischer- Dieskau) is as good as any.
