Fauré Requiem King's College Cambridge

'This recording of Fauré's Requiem, quite outstanding in its beauty, balance and sensitivity, also has claims to historical interest. Between the first performance of five movements in Paris's Madeleine church in 1888 and that of the full seven in the symphony orchestra score in 1900, the composer made various other versions, certainly reflecting the forces available and possibly also further original thoughts.' Roger Nichols
