Your favourite Requiem

Many composers have written a requiem.

I like the Mozart version best.

You?

I don't know as this would clasify as a "requiem"....but Berlioz 'Symphonie Fantastique' gives me the chills.

Mostly I know a "requiem" to be associated with the Roman Catholic church, though I know that is not always the case.

As in Mozart. Did you ever see "Amadeus"? Very good movie on the life of Mozart, however the writer took many liberties and made many assumptions.

The Grande Messe des morts, Op. 5 (or Requiem) by Hector Berlioz is certaintly a requiem

Have to agree with Mozart as tops - sublime (even if it wasn't all his work :wink: )

Then probably Faure, and Britten's War Requiem 3rd.

But we can't leave out Verdi' s "concert" Requiem, and John Rutter's Requiem is nice too.

Mozart's Requiem is definitely one of the good ones IMHO. But the "original" Gregorian Chant-requiem is the best of the best for me. :wink:

Just came across the LP of Andrew Lloyd-Webber's Requiem from all those years ago, with Placido Domingo & Sarah Brightman... Certainly still worth a listen. The Pie Jesu from it with Brightman and a choir-boy is the most well-known part. :)

Oh most definitely Mozart's requiem is the best. I could listen to it all day and still want more.

Faure's sends chills up my spine and Andrew Lloyd-Webber's is good, too.

I would put Mozart's Requiem at the top. I think Brahms had one that I heard years ago as well.

I agree, Mozart's Requiem is the best. Where I live, there is a music festival every year.
The final night is a performance of Mozart's Requiem; I am in the chorus.
It is an amazing thing to sing.

This year I have been to live performances of Faure's and Verdi's requiem, and another that I have heard on cd just this past week was Karl Jenkins' requiem.

Depending on one's mood, there are times for all of these plus the others already mentioned in this thread.
