A beautiful mass for the dead this week on Voices, written in the wake of the French Revolution by the ever-politically nimble Luigi Cherubini.

In the tumultuous political world pre- and post-French Revolution, Cherubini played both sides as deftly as any instrument. This week on Voices, his Requiem in C minor, written for the newly-reinstated post-Bonaparte monarchy in 1816.
