Editorial Reviews

Produced by the composer himself, this is the first recording of the ensemble version of John Rutter' radiant Requiem. Written in 1985, the work is not a conventional setting of the Requiem Mass but comprises a personal selection of texts from the Catholi

This CD has some of the most beautiful sacred music I have ever heard.
Heaven 's
They, like the Requiem, are well performed by the ideally sized ensemble and choir, with excellent diction, beautiful phrasing and some impressive singing.
LS Thompson
In my opinion, this copy of Rutter's Requiem is the best one available.

Anyone who has ever sung the Rutter `Requiem' gets it in their bones, and it stays there. This may not be the most profound Requiem ever composed, but it is certainly one of the most beautiful. There is a sort of symmetry with the appearance of this performance of the Requiem on Naxos. First, it is the version, available from the time of its original composition but never before recorded, for reduced forces; it uses organ and six instrumentalists (flute, oboe, cello, harp, timpani, percussion) as opposed to the more familiar version for medium-sized orchestra. Second, it is performed by musicians from Rutter's Cambridge alma mater, Clare College, where he read music as an undergraduate and where he was director of music in the late 1970s. And, finally, it has a certain resonance with what is probably Rutter's own most famous recording of music not his own, namely that of the Fauré Requiem. Rutter made an arrangement from the manuscript of the earlier 1893 version that Fauré made for reduced forces and he recorded that version for the first time. That recording changed our ideas about the Fauré; up to then we had known only the much larger version for full orchestra and chorus that he (or perhaps his student Roger-Ducasse) made for a performance in 1900. Rutter himself was producer of the present recording of his Requiem and therefore it obviously has his stamp of approval.
A comparison with the 1986 recording Rutter made with the Cambridge Singers and the London Sinfonia shows that the present performance is more delicate, more serene, and with even clearer diction than the earlier version.

Format: Audio CD
In 1993 Naxos scored big with their recording of Faure's Requiem featuring the Schola Cantorum of Oxford and the Oxford Camerata under the direction of Jeremy Summerly. It was Faure's original "stripped-down" arrangement for smaller orchestral forces and it made both listeners and critics take notice. It continues to be one of the best versions - if not the best - out there.

Now, 10 years later, Naxos does it again with a new recording of John Rutter's Requiem, a work partially inspired by Faure's Requiem. As on the Faure release, this arrangement, conceived at the same time as Rutter's full orchestral version, is for smaller forces, especially in the orchestra (just organ, harp, flute, oboe, cello, timpani, and percussion). To me it packs a greater emotional punch in this stripped down, more intimate version. The Choir of Clare College, an ensemble that has a long history with Rutter, performs beautifully and is perfectly balanced in the recording: this music sounds as though it is coming down from heaven. On the Pie Jesu and Lux Aeterna movements I found myself holding my breath so as not to miss one note from soprano Elin Manahan Thomas: she's that good. (The Pie Jesu is also a highlight of the Faure disc with soprano Lisa Beckley equally impressive.)

The remaining seven items on the Rutter disc, if the Requiem isn't enough to win you over, are equally impressive with the Musica Dei donum for flute and choir providing another work of sublime beauty. The last two works on the disk are for solo organ and are world premier recordings. I actually prefer this Rutter produced disc to Rutter's Collegium label disc which couples the Requiem with the Magnificat. Get this disk!

In my opinion, this copy of Rutter's Requiem is the best one available. The orchestra does not overpower the chorus. The soprano soloist, Elin Manahan Thomas, is sublime.

Beautiful is one of those words that I don't use often and I don't use lightly, but this recording of John Rutter's Requiem and other choral works is worthy of description with the full weight of the word. All seven movements of his magnificent requiem are flowing with rich, delicate beauty. Rutter uses the full palate that the orchestra and the chorus has to offer such as the light sustained oboe throughout "The Lord is My Shepherd" and the bellowing low cello in "Out of the Deep." It's cool to hear a mix of Latin and English texts throughout the work. The soprano solo on "Pie Jesu" is breathtaking and the work closes with the sonorous, harmonicaly rich "Lux aeterna." The "Sanctus" is triumphant and the incredibly haunting "Agnus Dei" sends chills up the spine. The main theme introduced in the first movement is just beautiful. I am sure that if I heard Rutter's Requiem performed live and well, it would certainly bring tears to my eyes. It is a simply beautiful piece of music and is very well interpreted on this album. There is an excellent attention to the text and the shape of the phrases. A truly wonderful recording.

As for the other works on this album, they are just as impressive. The bombastic, sonorous "Arise, Shine" has enough G-force to plaster you to the back of your seat. It is wonderful to listen to the dialog between the chorus and the flute in "Musica Dei donum." "A Clare Benediction" is absolutely beautiful, as is "Go Forth into the World With Peace." The chords in "Come Down O Lord Divine" are incredible.

As for the organ pieces, the "Toccata in Seven" is bright and exciting, though a little heavy in some sections. The epic "Variations on an Easter Theme" is just astounding.
