Notes & Reviews:

The first Carus CD by the Rundfunkchor Berlin (Berlin Radio Choir) offers two large choral works with unusual instrumentation. Instead of the large, opulent orchestras required for both Charles Gounod's "Requiem in C" und Antonín Dvorák's "Mass in D", these works appear on this recording in skillfully arranged versions for smaller ­ensembles: in the Gounod Requiem the Rundfunkchor Berlin under Risto Joost is accompanied only by organ, while the Dvorák Mass acquires a special tonal color through its wind quintet accompaniment.
