    I do love a good requiem.

    Berlioz
    Britten
    Brahms

    I love the Britten.

    I also turn to the Hindemith "For Those We Love". The fugue "Lo Body and Soul This Land" takes my breath away.

    The Cherubini D minor for my third.

    Mozart, Faure, Britten. Such a variety in these three.

    Shame to miss off the Victoria and Berlioz.

    Mozart
    Berlioz
    Schnittke

    Verdi's doesn't really do it for me. Weird, since I do love Verdi the opera composer.

    Wow. It shows you how messed up peoples tastes are. I am the opposite. Verdi's operas leave me cold and the Requiem would be one of my desert island disks.
    It is impossible to make anything foolproof because fools are so ingenious. And I am a very ingenious fellow

    Probably Faure... and then Mozart.

    But besides the obvious ones, I thoroughly enjoy Schumann's requiem! This piece is somewhat overlooked, but it has some fine moments.

    And the Gregorian Requiem is pretty cool, but you've really got to be in the mood for that one.

    Dvorak
    Mozart
    John Foulds (A World Requiem)-disappointed no one mentioned it yet. It's a highly moving score.
    Faure
    Kabalevsky
    David A. Hollingsworth (dholling)

    Yes! Schumann's Requiem, in addition to his Mass in C Minor, is a very much little recognized work, but the first movement is truly touching.

    I have only listened to Mozart's so I am unable to rank my top three because I have only one in my kitty. Thanks.
