Product Description

Review

The simplified, pared-down textures of this revived Requiem were a revelation, and seemed to add, rather than detract from the work's power to move. The Oxford University Press Choral Classics series has continued to be a vehicle for Rutter's work as editor and to showcase interesting historical curiosities . . . Fauré's economical interweaving of the vocal lines seems only to magnify the music's poignancy and limpid purpose. (Matthew Greenall, The Singer, April 2004)

About the Author

John Rutter was born in London in 1945 and studied music at Clare College, Cambridge. His compositions embrace choral, orchestral, and instrumental music, and he has edited or co-edited various choral anthologies, including four Carols for Choirs volumes with Sir David Willcocks and the Oxford Choral Classics series. From 1975 to 1979 he was Director of Music at Clare College, and in 1981 he formed his own choir, the Cambridge Singers. He now divides his time between composition and conducting and is sought after as a guest conductor for the world's leading choirs and orchestras.

This is a vocal score for soprano and baritone solo with SATB chorus and organ accompaniment of the 1893 version of Fauré's Requiem, edited by John Rutter in 1983 and published by OUP. It includes both the Latin words and an English translation by Rutter. It is clearly laid out and printed. Note that it differs from the 1975 Novello version edited by Desmond Ratcliffe in layout, tempo, dynamics, and rehearsal letters. There are also a few small differences in words and notes. This calls for extra care in rehearsing a chorus using both versions, but it can be done.

I bought this version assuming it would be set out clearly in 4 parts i.e. one line per vocal part. Sometimes this is the case but it does alternate where Sopranos/Altos share the same line as do Tenors/Basses. If you are a good reader then this will not put you off!
Otherwise, a nicely presented score.

I was expecting voices to be set out individually. I don't recollect reading the setting out of the score in the description. I would have found this useful being a novice score buyer.
