The Cantique de Jean Racine is an early work of Faure written when he was just 20 winning him first prize in a competition. It has justifiably remained popular ever since. The remaining works on the disc are of similar quality but it will be for the Requiem that this disc is chosen.
Similarly, the Cantique de Jean Racine is performed as originally written for choir and organ. This is a wonderful recording that will please listeners who are interested in historically informed performances, though many who love the better known 1901 orchestral version of the Requiem may be disappointed by the leaner feeling of this performance.
