Notes & Reviews:
This release contains a comprehensive collection of requiems that spans a thousand years, from the Gregorian hymns of early Christianity right up to modern laments of the 20th century. Featuring performances by top notch ensembles Schola Cantorum Stuttgart, Choir of Clare College, Cambridge, the Chamber Choir of Europe and much much more, this collection is a perfect blend of both the well known, i.e. the much recorded and performed requiems of Verdi and Mozart with lesser known and no less powerful works. Whether well known or not, ancient or modern, all share in common the introspection, melancholy, and profound if occasionally unsettling beauty that mark music composed to observe the rites and rituals of death.
