Over the years, Gabriel Fauré's Requiem, Op. 48, has become one of the most popular works in the choral genre, due in large part to its gentle music, poignant moods, and benign vision of death, which many find more appealing and comforting than the gloomy, doom-laden Requiems of some composers. A humanist who regarded death "as a happy deliverance," Fauré dispensed with the grim Dies Irae sequence and minimized references to the Last Judgment in the brief eruption of the Libera Me; otherwise, he treated the Latin texts from the Mass for the Dead and the Burial Service as calm and quiet meditations, and supplied them with some of his most inspired melodies and translucent choral writing. Michel Corboz leads the Ensemble Vocal de Lausanne and the Sinfonia Varsovia in a sublime performance of the 1893 edition of the Requiem, the so-called "church version" for soloists, choir, and chamber orchestra. With baritone Peter Harvey, soprano Ana Quintans, and organist Marcelo Giannini, the performers present the work with dignity, tranquility, and introspection, and make this one of the most compelling and satisfying performances available. Fauré's Requiem is presented with three of his short motets -- Ave Verum Corpus, Ave Maria, and Tantum Ergo -- along with the Messe des pêcheurs de Villerville (a collaborative effort between Fauré and André Messager), all suitable filler pieces in their sacred nature, small forces, and subdued tone; they are also rendered with a contemplative feeling and tender expression. Mirare's audio is clear and crisp in details, though the voices are surrounded with a beautiful resonance, thanks to the marvelous acoustics of the Abbey of Fontevraud.

Strauss & Kempe: Elective Affinities

The name of conductor Rudolf Kempe (1910-1976) is indissociable from those of composer Richard Strauss and the Dresden Staatskapelle orchestra. As Warner is now re-releasing the recordings made between 1970 and 1975, Qobuz is putting the spotlight on the Straussian legacy of a precise, often incisive conductor, who always paid the greatest attention to the text and its charms.

Orfeo Orchestra: 18th Century French Baroque, Resurrected

Orfeo Orchestra (conducted by György Vashegyi), a prolific performer of French baroque music since its birth, has been honoured in recent years by both Palazetto Bru Zane and the Centre de Musique Baroque de Versailles (CMBV) with invitations to record a series of explorations of French lyrical music – both baroque and classical.

Gounod: the Romantic, the Mystic

A major artisan of the renaissance in French music in the second half of the 19th century, alongside his elder colleague Berlioz, whom he admired, and his followers Bizet, Saint-Saëns, and Massenet, who were inspired by his faith in Art, Charles Gounod (1818-1893), a mystic and a charmer, a romantic in search of a new classicism, owed his fame to a few masterpieces, which have overshadowed his daring. A flourishing discography allows us to discover the diversity of his music: instrumental, vocal, religious, and lyrical.
