Biography

The Choir of King’s College, Cambridge, owes its existence to King Henry VI who, in founding the College in 1441, envisaged the daily singing of services in his magnificent chapel, one of the jewels of Britain’s cultural and architectural heritage. This remains the Choir’s raison d’être, and is an important part of the lives of its sixteen choristers, and the ... Read more in Amazon's King's College Choir Store

This is the classic recording of Fauré's Requiem. The soloists are on absoloutely top form - Chilcott gives an electrifying performance. And Sir David Willcocks demonstrates why he's such a legend - the sensitivity, drama, and musicality he injects into this recording is immense. If you have only one recording of this work, make sure it is this one.

10 of 10 people found the following review helpful By Ralph Moore TOP 50 REVIEWER on 29 Dec 2011
Format: Audio CD
I have known this recording for over forty years since I first sang the piece in my school choir and since as the baritone soloist, and I have never found one to match it. The pure, cool sound of the King's College trebles is ideal; there is none of the distracting edge or unsteadiness too often encountered in rival versions - surprisingly, even in the recording on the Regis label by David Hill conducting the normally excellent Westminster Cathedral Choir - and Willcocks knows exactly how to pace the proceedings and shade the dynamics. Treble soloist Robert Chilcott sings divinely, dead on the note without gulps or scoops, while John Carol Case's plaintive baritone hits just the right tone of entreaty.

The sound is remarkably clean despite the resonant acoustic. This is still the best version available.

Spike Milligan, of all people, said that he couldn't imagine music being more beautiful than Faure's Requiem. John Peel, of all people, included the Pie Jesu from this recording amongst his favourite records.

So who am I to argue? The best recording of the most beautiful music. Sounds about right to me.

We bought this version as a gift for my father in law. We based our choice on previous reviews and were not disappointed. My father in law is absolutely delighted with it as he loves this particular requiem! So it comes highly recommended!

I first heard this at a memorial service, and thought what a lovely recording, of In Paradisum,, although on my car CD the first part needs the volume right up
