This sublime compilation will take listeners on a journey through some of the most profound classical music ever written, demonstrating the wealth of inspiration that history’s greatest composers have found in spirituality and religion.

Taking its title from the concluding movement of Fauré’s intensely moving Requiem, described by the composer as a ‘very human’ take on the traditional Mass for the Dead, the collection surveys a vast range of styles, eras and composers. Renaissance masterpieces – including Allegri’s famous Miserere, the remarkable 40-voice Spem in alium by Tallis and Palestrina’s Sanctus – sit alongside Romantic classics like Fauré’s Cantique de Jean Racine, a sophisticated choral hymn-setting, and Brahms’s Ave Maria. A number of Mozart’s best-loved works are present, including the Ave Verum and excerpts from his Requiem and ‘Great’ Mass in C minor, as are arias by J.S. Bach and Handel’s magnificent ‘Hallelujah’ Chorus from Messiah. Less traditional offerings are also featured, encapsulated in the folk-inspired strains of the finale of Mahler’s Symphony No.4. A rich selection of classics by Franck, Bruckner, Hassler, Pergolesi, Mendelssohn, Tchaikovsky and Verdi complete this stunning collection.

Performed by the world’s best choirs, such as the King’s College Choir Cambridge, The Clare College Choir Cambridge, St John’s College Choir Cambridge, and the European Chamber Choir.
