Notes & Reviews:
Sir Roger Norrington's recording of Brahm's Requiem and Mozart's Requiem is the newest addition to the Veritas x2 series. Veritas x2 is a series from Virgin Classics devoted to landmark recordings of early Baroque music. Brahm's Requiem, swelling with lush and romantic sounds, is a masterpiece for chorus, orchestra, with soprano and baritone solos. This work is Brahms' longest composition. Mozart's Requiem, left unfinished at Mozart's death, is one of the most popular and beloved works in the choral repertoire. This Veritas x2 title features the completed Requiem by British composer and musicologist Duncan. Sir Roger Norrington leads the London Classical Players in this recording.

This is an enjoyable traversal of the [Mozart Requiem] score, with plenty of character and many points of illumination.
