Product Description

Product Description

The Choir of King s College, Cambridge under conductor Stephen Cleobury presents a compelling second release. Here it performs Mozart's Requiem (Süssmayr edition), followed by complete movement realisations by leading composers and musicologists including Michael Finnissy, Robert D. Levin and Duncan Druce. The recording also features a stellar line-up soloists and the Academy of Ancient Music. The second disc features a unique bonus audio documentary about Mozart s Requiem, narrated by Elin Manahan Thomas (soprano soloist), with commentary illustrated by extracts of both the Requiem and the works that inspired it. The album s release will be accompanied by an extensive international press and marketing campaign, supported by advertising and video for online and instore use. The Choir will be embarking on a major North American tour in April 2013 coinciding with the release. The Choir of King s College, Cambridge is one of the world s foremost choirs and unquestionably among the most widely heard. It owes its existence to King Henry VI, who envisaged the daily singing of services in his magnificent chapel. This remains the Choir s raison d être, and is an important part of the lives of its 16 choristers, who are educated at King s College School, and the 14 choral scholars and two organ scholars, who study a variety of subjects in the College. The Choir has been a breeding ground for numerous professional singers, two of whom James Gilchrist and Christopher Purves appear as soloists on this recording.

5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful recording 30 Oct 2013
By Sid Nuncius #1 HALL OF FAME TOP 10 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
This is an excellent recording of the Mozart Requiem. It has a lot of interesting things about it, but the core is a first-rate performance of the familiar Süssmayr completion.

King's College Choir and The Academy Of Ancient Music have been world class performers for decades now (and probably for centuries before that, in the case of King's). They produce something really special here, I think. The vocal and instrumental forces are smaller than in some monumental performances, but they are still perfectly able to produce a powerful, thrilling sound - at the opening of the Dies Irae, for example, where my spine genuinely tingles. They also have the suppleness and flexibility to bring out the delicacy and intimacy of the work where appropriate. The four soloists are uniformly excellent and the acoustic of King's College Chapel helps to form the performance into a wonderful, cohesive whole. This one of the best interpretations I have heard, and that's really saying something, given the quality of the competition.

Disc 1 also includes "Realisations" by five other composers of sections of the Requiem which Mozart did not complete. You can program your CD player to have the whole Requiem with any or all of these substituted for the Süssmayr movements. I find these extremely interesting, and the notes on them are excellent. (Personally, though, I keep going back to the familiar version which is deeply ingrained in me.) In addition, there is a second CD of articles about aspects of the Requiem written by Cliff Eisen and read by Elin Manahan Thomas. It is interesting, but personally I'd much prefer these in written form and I don't go back to this part of the set - but that may just be me.

You simply cannot go wrong here, in my view. This is a superb performance, beautifully recorded, with scholarly additions, interesting notes and lovely presentation. Very warmly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Added value 24 July 2013
By Bruce
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a fine performance of Mozart's Requiem and would justify a good review if that was all you got. But in addition you get a few extra 'completions' by other composers (that can be programmed into the main work on your CD player) and a bonus disc with 3 talks on the Requiem and the end of Mozart's life. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent Mozart Requiem 22 July 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
What a tremendously good recording of this well-known piece. A very scholarly CD talk accompanies the main recording, and there are also multiple alternative completions recorded here.

But don't be sidetracked by my emphasis on the scholarly. The scholarship simply adds to the excellent recording and lively, engaging performance.

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting aspects 9 Jun 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The performances are very good, as one would expect from such a good choir and musicians. The notes need to be read prior to listening as one should be aware of the various 'completions' by different people. The second CD is quite a good attempt to give an overview of the "mystery" of the works composition. It probably pragmatically avoids the most interesting question of all, how much did Mozart leave and how much did Sussmayer really contribute?

4.0 out of 5 stars New perspectives 15 Nov 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
From the musicological point of view this surely is a good bargain. Levin's & co's 'realisations' are good to hear not just read about. So, thanks for the production. However, it is the performance of the Choir and AAM that gives one new perspectives. It is not just finely recorded (SACD) but manages to combine the 'big band' sounds a 'la Scheier to lightier HIP sounds in a personal way. Especially the use of young voices open a fascinating view in to this strange requiem (and it's strange history). So, it suits to anyone's cd-shelf.
