Dunedin Consort - Mozart: Requiem - Surrey Mirror

Scotland's Dunedin Consort  have made their name with a series of carefully researched recordings  of Baroque masterpieces such as Bach's "Brandenburg Concertos" and "St. John Passion," but this stunning new Linn CD finds them attempting to recreate the sound that the audience would have experienced at the first official performance of Mozart's "Requiem" in 1793. As an exercise in historical reconstruction it's well nigh impeccable, with John Butt marshalling his resources superbly to create a richly detailed  rendition of this much loved work.
