Notes and Editorial Reviews

"John Eliot Gardiner with period forces chooses the version of the Requiem with the original instrumentation. The darkness matches Gardiner's view of the work...with excellent soloists - Catherine Bott radiently beautiful in the Pie Jesu, Gilles Cachemaille vividly bringing out work-meaning it makes an excellent choice. Les Djinns is specially welcome, with piano accompaniment on a gentle-toned Erard of 1874."

-- Penguin Guide [2003/4 Edition]
