    Question:
    Is it ever permitted to sing the Gloria in excelsis or the Credo in unum Deum at the Requiem Mass?
    Answer:
    In the Requiem High Mass, without exception, there is never a Gloria or Credo.

    Oooh, a requiem thread.

    In order, as of today:

    Schnittke
    Saint-Saëns
    Sculthorpe.

    OK, so I'm having an "S" day. It's a shame that Ligeti starts with "L", otherwise his would be in there for sure. If I were to die, and if I were Catholic and wealthy, I may well have requested the Saint-Saëns requiem be played but any of the other 3 mentioned would be acceptable. I am also compiling a list of the ones I would not like played. Currently this consists of:

    Mozart (some bits are sublime, others are shudderingly bad)
    Bruckner (awful)
    Verdi (Too.Loud)
    Lloyd-Webber (just no)
    Anything with "Requiem" in the title but not actually a requiem mass. Were I Catholic these would probably offend me.

    Tomorrow is another day, on which Howard Goodall and Nigel Westlake will be criticised.

    Favourite Requiem Mass? I think Mozart is just ahead of Berlioz, Verdi and Ligeti.

    It would be, but half the people are stoned, and the other half are waiting for the next election.

    I am adverse to listening to masses for the dead and that on religious principals. So I can't list a true requiem mass, but will be happy to list that I am fond of Brahms German Requiem which is not a mass at all and is to comfort the bereaved.

    Mozart

    I need to listen to more of these, like Britten's War Requiem and Berlioz.

    I still need to hear Berlioz's and Dvorak's Requiems, but so far I really like the following:
    Brahms - Ein Deutsches Requiem
    Mozart
    Michael Haydn

    If you haven't heard the Berlioz or the Dvorak, you haven't heard anything yet! May I also recommend the Cherubini (in c) to you. My recommendations in recordings, respectively: Sir Colin Davis, Karel Ancerl, Frieder Bernius.

    In an unrelated note, I heard the Liszt and it was pretty extreme. Capitalized on the harshness and loneliness of death (even the physicality of it, too, I felt) like few Requiems do.
    Wäre das Faktum wahr, – wäre der außerordentliche Fall wirklich eingetreten, daß die politische Gesetzgebung der Vernunft übertragen, der Mensch als Selbstzweck respektiert und behandelt, das Gesetz auf den Thron erhoben, und wahre Freiheit zur Grundlage des Staatsgebäudes gemacht worden, so wollte ich auf ewig von den Musen Abschied nehmen, und dem herrlichsten aller Kunstwerke, der Monarchie der Vernunft, alle meine Thätigkeit widmen.

    I would like to put in a good word for the Fauré Requiem-an unusually gentle take. Completely disarming.
    Facts don't care about your feelings.

    Luigi Cherubini.

    Thankfully I don't hear too many requiems in their usual habitat. I enjoyed this one today.
