    Post Best Requiem

    What's the best Requiem of all times?? Feel free to mention which one I forgot.

    Personally, I'd have to go with Brahms. It is powerful, yet pious(after all, a Requiem is a RELIGIOUS piece.) Ah damn it, it's just awesome.

    I know most of you will pick Mozart, but since he just wrote half of it, I don't feel it is really appropriate, even though it's a real chef d'oeuvre. But that's just my opinion.

    There are of course many, many, many (many) more requiems out there (notably by Bruckner, Verdi, Saint-Saëns, Dvořák and Stravinsky), but from the ones you've mentioned I'll go with Mozart, even if only the first two movements are entirely by his hand. That's how good I think they are.

    Fauré may get a lot of crap for not being very intellectual (whatever that is), but gosh, aren't the melodies of his requiem the sweetest things? Love 'em.

    Honorable mention: Berlioz. Acid-trip ethereal, as usual.
