Mozart Requiem conducted by Benjamin Britten

A classical album recommanded by About Last Night.

The recording was made at a 1971 performance by the the Aldeburgh Festival Chorus, English Chamber Orchestra, and four of Britten¡¯s favorite solo singers. It¡¯s well sung and well played, with slightly congested but otherwise serviceable sound¡ªnone of which matters in the least. If you had a chance to hear Felix Mendelssohn conduct Bach¡¯s St. Matthew Passion, you wouldn¡¯t pass it up because the organ was out of tune, would you?
