Notes and Editorial Reviews

Few works have been surrounded by the mystery and speculation which attends the Requiem. Set in Mozart's personal 'tragic' key of D minor and written to a commission received at a time of desperation - when his health was precarious and his finances more so - it became his own musical epitaph. The recording features distinguished soloists and one of England's most respected church choirs under the baton of the late George Guest.
