György Ligeti's "Requiem" for soprano, mezzo-soprano, two mixed choirs and orchestra is one of his most impressive compositions - especially, when directed by Michael Gielen - and at the same time "the" requiem of the 20th century: Sound which is chromatically layered moves gradually from the lower registers to the higher, thus changing from mourning sounds into the promise of the eternal light. In the Kyrie the polyphonic net which was previously static begins to move gently. It was a part of this composition that Stanley Kubrick used to accompany the discovery of the monolith in "2001: A Space Odyssey". Also on this WERGO disc are two other essential works, "Aventures" and "Nouvelles Aventures", highly theatrical and justly celebrated choral works.

In Requiem is Paradise Lost's eleventh studio album, again with Rhys Fulber on production duties. Talking about Paradise Lost, everyone knows that they are the fathers of gothic metal, although in some discs they have experimented with electro music. Now, they are back to the roots of their first albums and they seem stronger than ever! This album, ''In Requiem'', put them back to their throne.

This work by self-proclaimed ""non-composer"" Christopher Wood pays homage to the grief felt around the UK following the passing of Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother in 2002. A former cancer surgeon who now develops life-saving cancer drugs, Wood is a pharmaceutical entrepreneur who had, until 2002, never composed a note of music. But when the Queen Mother passed away, Wood was moved by the people who queued for hours to pay their respects, and felt a strong connection to their grief and sadness, but also their honour, gratitude and patriotic pride.

Between 1961 and 1986, Herbert von Karajan made three recordings of the Mozart Requiem for Deutsche Grammophon, with little change in his conception of the piece over the years. This recording, from 1975, is, on balance, the best of them. The approach is Romantic, broad, and sustained, marked by a thoroughly homogenized blend of chorus and orchestra, a remarkable richness of tone, striking power, and an almost marmoreal polish. Karajan viewed the Requiem as idealized church music rather than a confessional statement awash in operatic expressiveness. In this account, the orchestra is paramount, followed in importance by the chorus, then the soloists. Not surprisingly, the singing of the solo quartet sounds somewhat reined-in, especially considering these singers' pedigrees. By contrast, the Vienna Singverein, always Karajan's favorite chorus, sings with a huge dynamic range and great intensity, though with an emotional detachment nonetheless. Perfection, if not passion or poignancy, is the watchword. The Berlin orchestra plays majestically, and the sound is pleasingly vivid.

Lassus five-part setting of the Requiem is rarely heard; here it is recorded with brass for the firsttime, the sombre colors of the sackbuts further darkening the tone. The recording interweaving a number of motets, some also receiving first recordings, and amadrigal on death by one of Lassus contemporaries in an organ transcription prepared for thisoccasion. This innovative recording thus takes the listener on a spiritual journey, through the darkness ofbereavement to the elevation of the Christian soul after death. The booklet notes are by Lassus expert Barbara Eichner and by the conductor of Girton College Choir, Gareth Wilson, who explains the thinking behind the programme.

This may be the single most powerful piece of music that the Kronos Quartet has ever recorded, and perhaps that Terry Riley has ever written. This is because Requiem for Adam is so personal, so direct, and experiential. Requiem for Adam was written after the death of Kronos violinist David Harrignton's son. He died, in 1995, at the age of 16, from an aneurysm in his coronary artery. Riley, who is very close to the Harringtons and has a son the same age, has delved deep into the experience of death and resurrection, or, at the very least, transmutation. Requiem for Adam is written in three parts, or movements. The first, "Ascending the Heaven Ladder," is based on a four-note pattern that re-harmonizes itself as it moves up the scale. There are many variations and series based on each of these notes and their changing harmonics, and finally a 5/4 dance as it moves to the highest point on the strings. The drone-like effect is stunning when the listener realizes that the drone is changing shape too, ascending the scale, moving ever upward and taking part in the transmutation of harmony.

Robin Gibb and RJ Gibb began composing The Titanic Requiem in 2010, which was released on CD in 2012 to mark the 100th anniversary of the ill-fated voyage. The music tells the story of the ship’s journey, from leaving the English port of Southampton to the infamous and tragic ending. The world premiere of The Titanic Requiem occurred on 10 April 2012 at the Central Hall, Westminster, London, performed by Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and the RSVP Voices choir.
