    Aloha Art Rock,

    Good thread topic ---

    I'm partial to:

    Brahms: Ein Deutsches Requiem
    Durufle: Requiem
    Berlioz: Requiem
    Mozart: Requiem
    Verdi: Requiem
    Faure: Requiem
    Tomas Luis de Victoria: Officium Defunctorum
    *If a man wants God to hear his prayer quickly, then before he prays for anything else, even his own soul, when he stands and stretches out his hands towards God, he must pray with all his heart for his enemies. Through this action God will hear everything that he asks* -Abba Zeno-

    *Protagoras: "Truth is subjective. What is true for you, and what is true for me, is true for me. Your opinion is true by virtue of its being your opinion."

    *Socrates: "My opinion is: Truth is absolute, not opinion, and that you are in absolute error. Since this is my opinion, then according to your philosophy you must grant that it is true."

    Unusually for me something more recent, Preisner's "Requiem for my friend",

    the video on this youtube offering is not that inspiring, the MP3 download from Amazon is not expensive though.

    The soprano, Elzbieta Towarnicka impresses me, PC speakers don't do her justice though.
    Cheers MIKE.
