This recording is a gorgeous performance of Mozart’s excellent Requiem. Sheila Armstrong, the soprano, has a shimmering, pure, beautiful, above all a Mozartian voice – she shines in this recording. Baker has a rich voice that she uses with intelligence. Nicolai Gedda is radiant in the tenor role and Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau is at his considerable finest as the baritone. Daniel Barenboim conducts extremely well, and gets great singing and playing from his chorus and orchestra.
