This review is from: Requiem (Messe des morts) (Audio CD)
I had never heard of Campra before, shame on me, but like so many composers through the centuries who have produced good, or in this case great works, they have been 'lost' in the history of music. This work is of its time but also transcends it . Beauty can have both a particular, contemporary appreciation but can also show itself to every time and circumstance as demonstrating man's achievements and in this particular case the inspiration in the composers belief that he was offering his work to first to God.
