Faure: Requiem (The Choir of King's College, Cambridge)
By Jack Lawson 17th October 2016
Sublime music, captured in vivid sound.
Arranged here in its original liturgical score and played with the sound of a 19th century French Orchestra (which is very distinctive), this is a feast for the soul as well as for the ears. Vivid recording captured in January 2014 in the Chapel of Kings College, presented on a hybrid CD / SACD it warms the hearts of DSD admirers and challenges all who say that SACD’s are no longer issued. Thirty-two 5* reviews on Amazon and listen to samples confirm that this premium priced issue (£11.99 from Kings College online shop) is deservedly worth checking out.
