Brings requiem to life!,
This review is from: Mozart: Requiem; Kyrie in D minor (Audio CD)
I have always been a lover of Mozart and this is I would guess his archetypal piece even though it was finished posthumously by Sussmayr after consultation with Mozart's widow Constance and indeed after others had tried.
All the majesty of a requiem mass is contained within aided by the brilliant conductor John Eliot Gardiner, a superb group of soloist (unlikely to be bettered in my view), the wonderful English Baroque Soloists and the equally splendid Monteverdi Choir.
Buy this and you will treasure it as much I have my copy which I have had for the last 18 years.
