Gilles' Requiem 20 Feb. 2011
By Stephen Adams - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Herreweghe's performance was the first modern reading of Gilles' celebrated Requiem from manuscript, shorn of Andre Campra's beefed up orchestration, and very fine it is. In the style of the French Grand Motet, much of the singing is given to soloists and quite florid - as is the choral work. Despite its reputation as a bright and cheery Requiem, the music has decorum -- it's not scandalous like some of Mozart's highly operatic church music. What beautiful music this is, reverential, objective, but nothing morbid. Gilles had no strong convention of Requiem settings when he wrote, since they were uncommon in the period, so his approach offers a new slant on the familiar words. A unique masterpiece.
