Catalogue Number: 05S029
Label: Rondeau Production
Description: This 1862 work forms a link between the requiem settings of Mozart and Verdi and constitutes a milestone of Protestant requiem settings. Although the requiem settings of Mozart and Cherubini may have served as a source of inspiration, Kiel's musical ideas are new and typically romantic. Would have been nice to have the orchestral version though... Christina Bischoff (soprano), Anja Schumacher (alto), David Ameln (tenor), Matthias Jahrmärker (bass), ensemberlino vocale, Sua Baek (piano).
