1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, 9 Sep 2008
Mozart's Requiem is one of my favorite pieces of music. Something I have been passionate about for years. I bought this recording on the strength of the orchestra and conductor and was sadly disappointed with it.

The orchestra and choir seem, somehow, to be disjointed and performing apart. This rendition lacks the punch, fire and brimstone that you expect from the Requiem, and in places feels a bit sloppy. That said I don't think the recording itself helped the performance.

If you want a copy of the Requiem to stir the soul I would choose a different version.

5.0 out of 5 stars Floating on a cloud of bliss, 28 Oct 2004
This book is divine.
I love the intermingling of family history with food and glorious pictures. I love knowing where everything comes from. You will want to read the book from cover to cover as well as making most of the recipes for your friends and family.
