  • November 12, 2007 The most beautiful Requiem

    This great piece by Durufle is one of the most beautiful requiems. I think this reduced orchestration of the piece is even better than the full orchestration. But it is good to use trumpets and harp with strings and organ to give more briljance. With full orchestra the overall sound...

    becomes quite easily too thick and heavy. The version with organ and cello would be my second choice.

  • May 28, 2007 Perfect. Just what I was looking for.

    It is a packet of orchestral parts for the 3rd/reduced version of the requiem. It contains one printing of each of the strings, all 3 trumpet, harp and percussion parts. No vocal, organ or score, but those are available seperately and more readily. The orchestral parts for this version...

    are more difficult to come by and cost a moderately pretty penny, but in performance well worth it.
