Notes & Reviews:

"Leontyne Price in her early-thirties, and Jussi Bjorling shortly before his death at 49: these are the two outstanding reasons for acquiring this reissue. Both singers close-focus on the vulnerability of the human condition within the monumental scale of Fritz Reiner's reading and Bjorling's 'Ingemmisco', rock-solid of contour, yet with a core of anguished supplication, is one of the real wonders of this performance...." **** - Finch, BBC

Penguin Guide
Reiner's opening of the Requiem is very slow and atmospheric...Yet as the work proceeds the performance soon sparks into life, and there is some superb and memorable singing from a distinguished team of soloists. THe recording has a spectacularly wide dynamic range
