"...the sound quality is excellent...You will have to search hard for a more moving account of this great work."
Classic CD

"This new account of Mozart's Requiem merits a place among the finest, thanks in no small measure to the refinement and sensitivity of Herreweghe's music-making and the quality of choral and solo singing on offer...The full-bodied recording brings out the score's darker colours...and deserves praise for getting the right balance between choir and orchestra...In common with Herreweghe's first-rate account of Beethoven's Missa solemnis. Excellent."
