    That "Ikos" CD is good, especially the Taverner piece with the children's voices.

    Mozart Requiem, K. 626. Vienna State Opera Orchestra and Vienna Academy Chorus, Hermann Scherchen, cond. You can't go wrong with this personnel. I love this MCA Double-Decker series of historical recordings. The other disc is more sacred choral works by Mozart, with Rene Liebowitz conducting, and Haydn's Seven Last Words conducted by Scherchen. The First Church of The Final Judgement! AHHHHhh save us! All angst and ire, fear and diminished sonorities, dark minorish cadences. Awesome power, the Chorus is more powerful than you are, YOU ARE SENTENCED! Now die, succumb to the sleep of death...

    Britten's War Requiem. Not heard it for a few years, but was reminded to hear it again seeing it mentioned on another thread. I was blown away yet again by the overwhelming emotional power of it. I have Britten's own recording of it and the score. Conceptually brilliant and written with such compositional virtuosity, invention and musicality, the piece is a tour de force with a message that will forever resonate. A modern Masterpiece that transcends time and place.

    (...although not according to Stravinsky, who, on being told of its great success said "well it can't be any good then"...composers eh?)
