‘Sir Colin Davis conducts the Requiem with a judicious mix of fire and meditative calm’ (Gramophone) ‘a strong set of soloists … Every note fills me with affection and wonder, and that’s rare … his performance really feels like a live one as if we’re hearing this glorious score straight out of the crucible in which it was forged … From the Domine Jesu Christe onwards everyone seems gripped by the unfolding drama, prompting them to give of their individual and collective best … there’s a tension in the orchestra – a sense of approaching finality … that dark, tolling figure in the Lux Aeterna is unforgettable, the soloists singing with a liberating loveliness that’s equally memorable … Dies irae is (another) case in point … Sir Colin’s performance is in another league entirely’ (MusicWeb)
