Notes & Reviews:
Composed in 1816 in Paris, Cherubini’s Requiem in C Minor became very well known. It was performed at Beethoven’s funeral and was held in high regard by both Schumann and Brahms.
Frieder Bernius has the measure of this music, as do the choir with their lively "Quam olim Abrahae" fugue, but also, after the rather cursory "Sanctus" that was French custom, with a serene singing of the strangely harmonised "Pie Jesu".
International Record Review
The Stuttgart Chamber Chorus proves to be excellent purveyors of this regal sorrow, never self-indulgent, never anything less than perfectly poised and gracefully restrained, and yet always completely in sympathy with the music's satisfying mingling of stern formality and tightly-reined emotion.
