Description
Fauré's Requiem , his most popular work, is unique in that it does not adhere to the time-honoured liturgical text. Because he saw death as a gentle release from earthly life, he does not dwell on the horrors of the Day of Judgement. The ‘Dies irae', whose torments Verdi evoked vividly, is reduced to a brief interpolation in the ‘Libera me' (‘Deliver me, O Lord, from eternal death'), in a work that is serene and contemplative.

"An outstanding choral performance—warm and dark-toned."—The Independent

"Ethereally beautiful."—Penguin Guide

"Recommended without hesitation."—Classic CD

"If you're looking for a Fauré Requiem look no further."—Stereophile
