This is the 1947, full-orchestra version of Maurice Duruflé's Requiem, one of the 20th century's most beloved choral works. It is the first of three versions the composer made of the piece. Despite the enhanced intimacy of the smaller scale versions, the original offers a rich orchestral tapestry, especially compelling in the performance by Michel Plasson's forces, without diminishing the work's radiant beauties or its spiritual depths. Those virtues are enhanced by the singing of Anne Sofie von Otter and Thomas Hampson. The chorus, a weak element in the Requiem, shines brighter on the rest of the disc, which gathers all of Duruflé's choral music. The Mass is more assertive than the Requiem and should be heard more often. It gets a powerful performance here, as do the miniature Motets, intense in their restrained beauties. --Dan Davis

I did not know this composer or this work but now that I'm listening to it I am enjoying every single sound of this CD. I can only say that it is exquisitely beautiful. Highly recommended to any lover of choral music.

Durufle's Requiem - here's the story. A few weeks ago, I had never heard of it. Then, a friend of mine told me that it was quite possibly his favourite piece of music ever. I was intrigued, and checked it out on Amazon. It was, indeed, very beautiful. Then, to my huge surprise, I, together with all the other members of the choir I sing in, learned that, next January, we would begin rehearsals of Durufle's Requiem! Hence, I ordered this CD immediately, with the purpose of getting better acquainted with the music. Knowing that there were several versions available - the original one for large orchestra and organ, another for organ only, and an intermediate 'church' version with reduced instrumental forces - I opted for this, the full orchestral version, and I have to say that it is simply sublime. I figured that as this EMI disc featured a French orchestra with a French conductor, I couldn't go far wrong. After all, if you've heard the Finnish conductor, Osmo Vanska, conducting Sibelius's Seventh, you'll know where I'm coming from. This is music of astonishing power and beauty. It is highly polished and refined and intensely spiritual. If you love Faure's Requiem, you will love this too, perhaps even more. This version features Thomas Hampson singing the baritone part - excellently - and Anne Sofie von Otter singing mezzo-soprano, also faultlessly. In fact, Anne Sofie's tone is so rich and warm that I cannot think of anyone else who would fit the part so well, and she really draws you into the heart of the music. How would I really describe this music? Well, it's the sort of music that, when listening to it, you could swear that you had died and gone to heaven. Enough said. And it's a good recording. So, if you haven't heard of Durufle, check him out, You'll be glad that you did. Oh, and buy this CD!

Just a decent Durufle requiem.... I have three better.....The Naxos disc of Piquamel's is my favourite. This one won't get played too often.

The orchestral version of Durufle`s Requiem is without doubt the most interesting version, and a good recording of it would be a plus in any CD collection. Unfortunately this recording is not up to the task.
The performance itself is good, so far as one can tell, but it is so poorly miked that much of it is simply lost. Whenever the choir is singing, the sound is distant and diffuse, and the counterpoint is barely audible; what one gets is a vague wash of sound coming from some far-off place. A pretty wash, admittedly, but a wash nonetheless.
Yet when the focus is on the soloists, or the orchestra alone, the mikes are much closer in, and one can hear that the orchestral playing is fine. That makes me wonder if those who are coming to this work for the first time simply don`t realise how much they are being short-changed. The pie jesu simply should not sound louder than the libera me or the offertoire.
Perhaps some listeners like the distant-sounding choir; this listener however would prefer to hear the detail. Certainly the wide dynamic range of the piece will always present the recording engineers with problems, but the choices they have made here do the music no favours at all.

All things bright and beautiful... 1 Sept. 2005
By L. Krogstad - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I've listened to 4 different recordings of Durufle's Requiem closely: Santa Cecilia National Academy Orchestra Rome with Cecilia Bartoli and Conducted by Myung-Whun Chung, Voices of Ascension Chorus & Orchestra with Patricia Spence and Conducted by Dennis Keene, Atlanta Symphony Orchestra & Chorus with Judith Blegen and Conducted by Robert Shaw, and this one. And I have to say that this is my favorite. The textures are richer and the performances by the orchestra and choir are better than the others. I will admit though that Cecilia Bartoli gets my vote for most beautiful performance of the Pie Jesu, but Anne Sofie von Otter's rendition is also very nice.

However, if you're looking for just one recording of Durufle's Requiem, this should be the one.

PERFECTION!! 13 Aug. 2001
By Sean McCandless - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is one of the most beautiful CDs on the face of the planet. Durufle, a composer of the French Organ School, was a composer who possessed much reserve and this shows through in the restrained beauty of his music. Of particular interest is Track 16, UBI CARITAS--Durufle as well as the chorus are at their best here. The chorus sings the beautiful motet gently and with much feeling. The sublime beauty of this work of art instantly brings Durufle as an equal to that of Mozart, Bach, Handel, Vivaldi, and Beethoven. This music is not for those who like humungous bangs but rather those who can appreiate the quiet dignity of this man's work.

Poor at best 3 Jan. 2008
By B. R. Merrick - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Whether it's choirs that don't know how to blend, an orchestra that doesn't know how to stay together, or any combination of choirs and instrumentalists that don't know how to play in tune, this gorgeous piece in its full orchestral version does not yet appear to have received the treatment it so desperately needs. Sadly, this recording is no exception. In fact, it is one of the worst offenders: French Horns that sound like they're playing in a closet, an orchestra that can't keep the tempo together, subtleties inherent in the music that are entirely missed. Someday someone is going to do justice to this beautiful piece, and give it the interpretation it deserves.
Durufle 13 Nov. 2014

The Requiem is sublime music. As an organist in northern CA, I played for a wealthy Presbyterian church and the choral conductor was very fond of Durufle. I would arise early in the morning, drive to the church and practice, then home and to my 'day job'. I any of you have not heard this stunning music, I dare-say that you will be well pleased to buy a copy and listen.

I enjoyed singing this piece of work. I sang this piece several years ago and loved singing it with my choral group.
