Notes & Reviews:
If you want a traditionally conceived budget-price Requiem, well sung à superbly played and vividly recorded, Davis's performance has much to commend it.
Davis' approach to the Requiem à contained both tragic grandeur and high drama, with the Dies Irae pointing the way towards the theatrical vividness of some 19th-century settings, but nothing was remotely sentimental of self-pitying.
BBC Music Magazine
This performance benefits from marvellous sound and shows Davis secure in his tempo choices and bringing that combination of solemnity, grandeur and drama to a work he particularly cares for.
