About

Verdi’s mighty operatic Requiem and Fauré’s more demure offering are stablemates in this collection of rare recordings of these masterpieces.

Reissues of Paul van Kempen’s recordings on Eloquence have been garnering great critical plaudits and this is the first international release on CD of his recording of the Verdi, made for Philips in 1955 and featuring stirring contributions from the soloists, especially soprano Gré Brouwenstijn and contralto Maria von Ilosvay.

Jean Fournet recorded the Fauré Requiem twice. While his later recording, in stereo, has been widely available, his darker 1953 reading of this work, which features Pierrette Alarie and Camille Maurane, is a rarity.
