Hailing the "burning conviction" of this recording, Gramophone awarded Riccardo Muti the victor's palm for his incandescent interpretation of Verdi's apocalytpic, yet deeply compassionate setting of the Requeim Mass. Renata Scotto, one of the great Verdi sopranos of her time, leads a powerful quartet of soloists, while the Philharmonia Orchestra and Ambrosian Chorus rise to every challenge of a score that brings the heightened drama of the opera house to a solemn liturgical text.
