Thierry Lancino’s vast Requiem is a challenging and eloquent contemplation on human mortality which the composer describes as ‘both an epic fresco and sacred ceremony’. In a paradox which brings the Christian into dialogue with the Pagan, Lancino presents an exploration of Death and Time which is both human and relevant, as well as posing eternal and unanswerable questions. This recording captures a unique and moving event, performed by a stellar cast of artists and France’s leading choir and orchestra.

*****

“In surround, the experience is exhilarating when the chorus and sizeable orchestra are given full rein, but there is also the frisson that comes from hearing so many people singing and playing in a whisper. Moreover, this music is worth hearing.”

International Record Review

February 2012

“the leading Peter Grimes of our day, [Skelton] has no difficulty with the taxing tessitura...Lancino's Requiem is an inventive and impressive achievement..The impressive playing of the Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France is matched by fervent singing from the Choeur de Radio France.”
