Format: Audio CD
The Requiem Op.5 is one of Berlioz's greatest works and its performance demands luxuriously a large scale orchestra, a boys' choir, a huge chorus and a tenor (in IX Sanctus). The array is no less enormous than Mahler's symphony No.8 requires.

Simply speaking, Sir Colin Davis and LSO ensure an excellent Berlioz performance. This splendid Requiem recording of 1969, like other Berlioz discs from LSO under the baton of Davis, can be rated first class in terms of all aspects. Davis's unique reading is as charming as before, especially at chorus sections. The original recording keeps high level of Philips and the CD transfer is also well done.

Colin Davis ranks absolutely among greatest Berlioz exponents. This Requiem interpretation stands undoubtedly along with those legendary performances from Charles Munch and Sir Thomas Beecham.

Highly recommended!

This recording has been around the block quite a few times but retains its quality, particularly the conducting of Colin Davis, at the height of his Berlioz powers - when wasn't he? The recording doesn't have the clarity of a more modern one and Ronald Dowd was never quite up to his very difficult solo. But this is a classic recording which is well worth revisiting.

Probably the best version of this fantastic work. There are a lot of versions, but personally I prefer Sir Colin Davis version.
