Notes & Reviews:
In terms of quality and the appropriateness of its setting, this Requiem is altogether in keeping with its elevated purpose. In his obituary for Franz von Suppé in 1895, Johannes Brahms wrote: "He actually owes his incredible agility in secular things to his sacred compositions. He had really learnt something!"

Simply on letting this new recording from Munich wash over me. All of the soloists are excellent, and the bass Albert Pesendorfer in the 'Tuba Mirum' sounds like the Voice of Doom - I'd love to hear him in the Verdi! Schaller favors expansive tempos that generally work quite well. His bouncy "Quam olim Abrahae" works a lot better. This is probably the best sound the Requiem has had in some time. A very special commendation to the Munich trombones. I'm very happy to add this one to my collection.
