    Dvorak wrote a Requiem?! How could that escape me. I'll try to listen to that as soon as possible.

    Ligeti
    Henze
    Michael Haydn

    Brahms & Verdi, because their requiems are poles apart, then Ligeti.

    Mozart's one is not among my favourites. I find it weaker than his masses

    I would advocate Francesco Cavalli. His requiem (8 parts a cappella) is very seldom sung, but very impressive.

    Brahms' Ein deutsches Requiem (even though it is technically not a standard requiem mass)
    Mozart's Requiem (yes, I know, he didn't finish it, but it is still a fine piece)
    Faure
    J.C. Bach
    Ockeghem
    Biber Requiem a 15 in Concerto

    Not in order of preference:

    Faure
    Verdi
    Brahms

    This thread reminds me I must listen to the Ligetti, Cavalli and Britten again soon.

    Since it's the Verdi birthday year I've been listening to many versions of this masterpiece. Really enjoying Barenboim's new one with La Scala and his stunning quartet of soloists. Did anyone else catch Muti's stunning live CSO webcast? WOW. Didn't love the soloists (especially the tenor, from Muti's cd recording) but the orchestra and chorus were ON FIRE.

    Mozart, Faure and Ligeti at the moment, but I still have to listen to Brahms' one yet.
