    Stravinsky's Requiem Canticles has touched my soul lately.

    Rautavaara
    Children's Mass


    Simplicity and pureness. An extraordinary moment of beauty.

    Giovanni Sgambati – Messa Da Requiem (1895) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZT28IRKp6H8

    Pupil of Liszt although this late romantic requiem sounds more Wagnerian to me. Very rich but fairly low key, not a Verdi opera-like mass. Supposedly Sgambati was trying to remake Italian instrumental music and drag it away from it all simply being in service to opera.

    Ethel Smyth - Mass in D (1891) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i_gdRUcwlQg

    That led me to discover that suffragette Ethel Smyth also wrote a mass. Got to listen to that one now too.

    Igor Loboda – "Requiem for Ukraine" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jd88z3O-UmA

    Is sacred music ever not political? Well it rather clearly is here. Lisa Batiashvili performs a new piece for solo violin, an instrumental requiem for Ukraine.
    The soft complaining flute in dying notes discovers the woes of hopeless lovers.

    Pergolesi:
    Nel chiuso centro - chamber cantata
    Anna Netrebko (soprano)
    La conversion e morte di San Guglielmo duca d'Aquitania: Sinfonia to the sacred drama
    Questo è il piano
    Marianna Pizzolato (contralto)
    Stabat Mater
    Anna Netrebko (soprano) & Marianna Pizzolato (contralto)

    Stabat mater - Antonio Pappano 2010, Anna Netrebko, Marianna Pizzolato, Orchestra dell'accademia.jpg

    Not only is this my favourite interpretation of Pergolesi's Stabat Mater but also this is my favourite performance of Neterbko and Pizzolato.

    This recording has not been released yet (at least not in France), but it is already available on Spotify.

    Both very moving works!

    My current favourite is Philippe Jaroussky's album Pietà by Vivaldi, utter bliss. Also, old favourites, Rutter and Fauré's requiems. I'm looking forward to trying out some of these suggestions.

    (Hi by the way, I'm new. *waves*)
