“Included with the Requiem on this SA-CD are several of Fauré’s lesser known smaller choral works. Most notable is a late edition of the orchestral Pavane to which Fauré has set a poetic text. Also included is the beautiful anthem Cantique de Jean Racine, performed here with orchestral accompaniment. Packaged with this excellent performance of the Requiem, this recording is a wonderful collection of Fauré’s choral music.
“Those who play the multi channel version of the album on SA-CD equipment are enveloped by sound which makes you feel happy beyond belief.”
“This is the hallmark of a great recording – one that does not beat you over the head but invites you inside its acoustic framework to share its delights”.
“This recording surpasses all existing recordings in depth and perspective…Fauré excellsthanks to the collective effort of choir, orchestra and soloists.”
