Classical riches and 20th century tranquility abound in tonight's concert from the RLPO recorded at Philharmonic Hall in Liverpool. Duruflé's Requiem, written just after World War II, has a quiet depth that stays with you. No wonder it is a favourite of choirs everywhere. It is paired with one of Mozart's few sacred works, his Kyrie in D minor, and his substantial Symphony No 39.
