    This Requiem is one of the finest I have heard. It focuses on comforting the bereaved more than other Requiems have done. I think the scripture verses sound far more profound in German than even in the KJV English.

    My favourite part is the angry chorus, when the choir bellows out "Denn alles Fleisch est ist wie Gras..."

    (All flesh is as Grass...)

    Even if you don't speak German, it's worth hearing.
