Johannes Ockeghem and Bent Sørensen - Requiem

Johannes Ockeghem composed this beautiful choral requiem 500 years ago which has been lovingly compiled, augmented by Danish composer Bent Sørensen and performed in completition by conductor Paul Hillier and Ars Nova Copenhagen.
Sørensen was basically tasked (or commissioned) to complete the 500 year old requiem because of his previous in depth knowledge of Ockeghem. Danish composer Bent Sørensen augmented this mass adding in some movements from the Requiem which he had already composed. This was something I was a little unsure of when i bought this SACD but I can tell you that this proved to be unneeded.

The end result is a beautiful choral mass that I am very fond of which strives to reach the heavens and will clearly take you to a place you have never been before. This mass is very deep and emotional with some superb moments that will stay with me forever. Granted you have to be in a mood for this type of choral music, but if you are then this disc is a wonderful way to spend and hour.

The Ars Nova Copenhagen choral orchestra are album will make your heart soar ..........

I was really caught off guard with just how beautiful this album is...........
