Robert Breault, tenor
Stan Engebretson, conductor

Berlioz’s magnificent Requiem (Grande Messe des Morts), written in 1837 to remember the soldiers who died in the July 1830 Revolution that overthrew King Charles X of France, involves a massive orchestra and chorus as well as four antiphonal brass ensembles. The Requiem was Berlioz’s favorite work. He wrote to a friend: “If
I were threatened with the destruction of the whole of my works save one, I should crave mercy for the Messe des Morts.”
