2009 thread about the work

I've started a Berlioz Grande Messe des Morts challenge in the last days, counting 30 different performances. I have other questions, but which are your favourite performances and what do you like to feel listening to them?

I have got this on disc but afraid never warmed to the work.
Ditto. I love much Berlioz but still can't warm to this. i have the Bernstein DVD, the Munch (a Munch?-- BSO), McCreech, Levine/BPO, maybe others.

And I was fortunate to be in Amsterdam a couple of years ago for Pappano and Javier Camarena with the Concertgebouw....

I end up with multiple copies of things I really love, first, or second, for works I don't get in an attempt to find it in a particular performance. I would have given my eye teeth to have heard Bernstein's performance in Les Invalides -- except that I wouldn't after having seen the DVD.

More work to do, I guess.
