  • Excellent Recording

    The Faure Requiem and the two Mozart works (Ave Verum Corpus and Vesperae Solemnes) are excellent recordigs. It should be noted, however, that iTunes has incorrectly identified the composer of the Ave Verum and the Vesper as being by Faure. Faure only composed the Requiem and Mozart composed the music on the other tracks.

    This is a stunning recording of Faure's Reuiem. The Sixteen deliver a wonderfully rich sound, and the Academy of St. Martin's is impeccable. What continues to amaze me about this recording is that the choir, at only 16 voices, manages to produce a warm full tone, which still records as clean and well blended. It's absolutely breathtaking in places. One subjective criticism: The soprano soloist's voice can get a bit pedantic.

    I absolutely LOVE the faure requiem. This version, while not sounding too operatic, still retains great choral tones and amazing vocalists. However, I had to pay for the entire album, after first purchasing pie jesu, when it should've lowered in price. Ah well, it was worth it.
  • Sanctus from Faure Requiem

    Our choir sang the Sanctus this morning in church. I was in the tenor section. I couldn't wait to download it from iTunes. Soulful both times.
