This remaster of the 1961 requiem is stunning. I first heard this in the late fall of 2002. I was a Mozart Requiem virgin at the time. Considering I have listened to this about 5,000 times, whenever I try another version of the requiem nowadays it doesn't have the same beauty to me. Other versions offer more clarity and different timbres, but this version is full of emotion and yearning. That is the only way I can describe it. On top of that, after the requiem we get the heavenly, angelic, solemn Laudate Dominum which to my ears is also the best version I have heard. Finishing with the Exultate which is nothing short of breathtaking we are left feeling happy and optimistic. What an incredible CD. Buy it, you won'tregret it, (as I have with other requiem's...mainly the London Symphonhy Orchestra ,and London Chamber Orchestra versions.) Well, I don't truly regret it...listening to them hasonly made this version that much more outstanding.

I like the St.Stephen's 200th anniversary of Herr Mozart's death version. I look forward to hearing the Shaw version and the 1975 Karajan recording. I'm sure each Requiem version has it's virtues, but this one rises above at this moment, IMO.

This is a nice and quite adequate performance of the Mozart Requiem. Tempi may be a bit slow at times, but that isn't a problem on this music.

There's only one flaw that makes me deny this one a fifth star. The soprano's Latin pronunciation is not good. She has a flaw apparently common among German singers in Latin, but on this work it's especially obvious, because of the text of her first solo: "Ti dicit hymnus, Dius, in Sion; it tibi ridditur votum in Jirusaleem." It just sticks out too much for me.

Here the soup works- death is inevitable. It is slowly enveloping your soul. You fight. Et lux perpetua. A mournful prayer is sung from the depths. Wilma Lipp sings as one mourning on our behalf. This is perfection. I've tried so many requiems that I've all but come back to the BEST version- this is the one to own. Every other version I've heard falls well short of conveying the emotional drama. Buy this and blast it. The Domine Jesu will knock your socks off when the Ne Absorbeat Eas Tarturus tenors beckon to the Lord to save your repentant soul. So you know what I'm comparing this to I've heard Karajan 75/88, Davis, Rilling, Harnoncourt, Gardiner, Norrington, Gonnewein, Pearlman, Solti, Hogwood, Savall, and Herreweghe. Forget Levin, Maunder, Druce, and whoever else. Sussmayer is irreplaceable warts and all. It is better that the Sanctus and Benedictus are a little shorter- I believe there is Mozart in these but not in total- we get a glimpse. It is so perfect. Want to treat yourself? Place Spering's Amen fugue fragment after the Lacrymosa- I truly can not recommend this enough.

As a bonus, here we get Maria Stader's Laudate Dominum. Right after the Cum Sanctus Tuis is a prayer to praise God- the timbres here are so perfect. The Exultate Jubilate ends this disc on a high note- it is as if it belongs to the Requiem. Please get this. I mean, as of this writing it is going for a penny used- there is no excuse. Take my word for it.

I have to say I disagree entirely with the reviews of this little bargain disk that describe the interpretation of Karajan's it contains as lifeless, artificial, or otherwise characteristic of the Herr Direktor's typical modus operandi. While with many other Karajan recordings I do indeed find that his work fails in the ways these other reviewers have indicated, I find this edition of Mozart's masterpiece utterly overwhelming. In fact, it may be my favorite recording out of many years' accumulated music. I bought it a few years ago because it was cheap and I wanted to hear Karajan's Requiem, but I never anticipated the amount of satisfaction I've obtained by it.

If one thing is certain about all of Karajan's interpretations, especially the ones that fail, it's his acute and unremitting high-mindedness, his characteristic drive to penetrate into the sublime in a piece. So, when his work fails, it typically fails because the force of intellect driving it has strangled the breath of life out of the music in its attempt to force the composer to give up his inner soul. You hear it in the Scherzo of his later version of Beethoven's Ninth especially. His concern for the extremely meticulous artistic rigor he believes great music demands of its performers is his classic feature. In this particular recording, for once, Karajan actually succeeds, and it is an astonishing thing. We hear the deeply mystical in Mozart's final work, in a way that none of the emotionally-drenched, overtly romantic conductors of the twentieth century that every liebhaber loves could have produced it. The control of the pacing throughout, especially in the Tuba, is ineffable, flawless.
