Possibly the best performance
Carlos Gonzalez | COCONUT CREEK, FL USA | 12/17/2006

"Faure's Requiem is one of my favorite pieces. I have several different versions of it on CD and have even performed it myself with choir and orchestra (I am a tenor).
Based on the excellent reviews I went ahead and purchased this version and I am listening to it as I write this review.
This is definitely the clearest and cleanest performance of this requiem I have heard yet. I enthusiastically recommend it.
If you like Faure, also try Pelleas & Melisande. The Deutsche Grammophon version with Seiji Ozawa is very good. I had lost my tape and decided to purchase the CD recently. It comes with one of the best chorus versions of the Pavane (the one on this Requiem CD is very good but instrumental only)."

"I have been sampling other performances of the beautiful, moving Requiem, but there simply is no other as pure, and perfectly balanced -- the sorrow and darkness of grief is here, but unlike other requiems, in a way that touches the heart gently, lightly, and soothes the pain of loss. When you hear this recording, you somehow know that death is not the end."
