Requiem is a work of

beauty, with many

strokes of imagination

in wordsetting and

scoring. Adrian Leaper’s well-paced

performance, with an acceptable

solo quartet, a soft-grained chorus

and an excellent orchestra, and well

recorded, is a welcome transfer from

Marco Polo to its budget stable-mate.
