Play this at my funeral, please! Reviewer: A reader from Houston, Texas April 13, 1999
I have performed this in three different choirs, singing both tenor and baritone, and it is, to me, the greatest Requiem every written. I have performed the Mozart, Verdi, Bach, and a few other Requiems, but none compare. Mozart is technically more complex. Verdi is GRANDER, by far. Bach's was terrific, but not his best work. However, the Fauré is the perfect blend of beauty, power, and ethereal elegance that easily associates with the ideal of heaven. Own it, sing it, or play it and know the peace of the life hereafter.
