  • Berlioz is the greatest musical figure in the French Romantic movement. His Requiem (1837) " La Grande Messe des Morts " was written for the soldiers killed in the Algerian campaign.
  • The Requiem was the only work Berlioz permitted to be published without any revision. His own account of the first performance was as follows: "The effect on people of contrasting sensibility and disposition was overwhelming. The priest wept for a quarter of an hour at the altar after the ceremony and embraced me in tears in the sacristy; the impact of the five orchestras and eight pairs of timpani in the "Tuba mirum" was indescribable. A female member of the choir had a nervous breakdown. It was a truly awesome experience."
  • The magnificent cathedral of Regensburg is a perfect setting for this recording of Colin Davis conducting the Bayerischer Rundfunk Symphony Chorus and Orchestra in a splendid, moving performance of Berlioz´s monumental work, with tenor Keith Lewis as soloist. The performance is completed by the pealing of the cathedral bells
