5.0 out of 5 stars Intimate and honest 4 Feb 2005
By Johan
Format:Audio CD
It's not the most solid performance of these works,neither the most powerful, nor the most perfect or the better vocalised. The choir does not always enter the passeges at the right tempo, and there are some tracks where some extra energy, for adult voices would've been desireable (listen to Durufle's 'Liberame). However, the intimacy and sweetness of these performances compensate for any lack in other fields. The particular quality of the children's voices adds to the spirituality of this music. VOice solos are consistently superb. Jonathan Bond does an impressive Liberame in Faure's Requiem, and Robert King is breathtakingly unearthly in Durufle's "pie Jesu" (is he the same Robert King as the one leading the King's COnsort today?!?!) Sound quality is satisfactory, although not the most careful capture made by Decca, but this should not be an excure not to get it. Poulenc's unfrequent choral works are a most attractive bonus. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Durufle - the best 15 Feb 2006
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
The Cleobury, St John's College recording of Durufle's Requiem is a gem. Unlike other recordings it eschews the operatic and attains a yearning frailty and simplicity entirely in keeping with the work's themes. It remains, for my money, the finest and most moving recording of this composition I have heard.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great performances of these French Requiems 28 Dec 2013
By Bacchus TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
Many years ago, I had the LP of the St John's College Cambridge recording of the Faure Requiem, which I was given as a Christmas present after taking part in a performance of the work.

Sadly, I sold it a few years later when I was acquiring CDs [stupid mistake] and have only just reheard it on CD coupled with Durufle's Requiem, a recording I had never heard before.

For me, the Faure is one of the most wonderful performances I have ever heard and one that goes to the very top of the pile. It's now a very big pile. This is not a pure ethereal chaste performance associated with boy's voices nor is it a big 'choral society' version with big orchestra. For me, this performance is the perfect synthesis of both. The boys and choral voices have a wonderful richness of tone and a real 'Romantic' sensibility, underlining every expressive point and creating a real dramatic sense of the words. However, it also achieves an intimate atmosphere with its reduced vocal and orchestral forces. The choir has the wonderful Benjamin Luxon as baritone soloist, whose singing is very much in the same character. His solos are a delight.

The Durufle is an equally fine performance. Although the Faure was relatively rare on LP in the late 70s [compared with now], the Durufle was virtually unknown with very few recordings. The choir is accompanied by organ rather than orchestra. However, it is superbly performed and the organ part is very fine in its own right. Durufle was of course a very fine organist - he made very famous recording of the Poulenc organ concerto so it should not come as a surprise that the organ only accompaniment should sound so idiomatic.

This rating is multi-factorial.

This 2 cd set was new, great value for money, and packed with desirable items. On the 'down' side, it is getting rather ancient, although digitally re-mastered, but its sound quality is not what one might expect from the latest techniques. However, off-setting this, from the rendition point of view, it is better than anything else I have heard - really matching the liturgical demands.

Added to this, although undoubtedly new, the first arrived (well within predicted delivery estimates) but one disc was 'scuffed' (obviously one that 'got away' faulty from the manufacturer. The playability was not as bad as the visual damage might suggest, but it 'skipped' in several critical passages. The service from the seller was faultless, and I received a (perfect) replacement almost by return of post, and I cannot commend this too highly.

Altogether a great addition to the collection of anyone looking for 'expression', acceptable quality, and great value.

Thank you Eva at 'MUSIC-4-THE-MASSES'! I would be pleased to do business with you in the future.
