Notes & Reviews:

Composing his requiem after a period of intense grief, Fauré's Requiem differentiates itsef from the work of his contemporarie's by its serenity. The Requiem is an intensely personal utterance. Charles Koechlin said 'thanks to the overflowing of his heart, Faure has created an aeterna requiem of serene gentleness and consoling hope'

Gramophone Magazine
Among recordings of the 'received' text of Fauré's Requiem, Davis's ranks very high indeed, for the subtle beauty of its choral singing, for the sober richness of its orchestral sound and for its marvellously atmospheric acoustic. All these qualities are intensified by CD, and the virtues of Davis's reading are as a consequence still more strongly projected: its solemnity, its firmly controlled gravity of tread, the lovely refinement of its dynamic shadings
