An impressive requiem of Donizetti's teacher Johann Simone Mayr: Grande messa da requiem in sol minore, for soprano, tenor, bass, voices and orchestra, composed in 1815, is a massive 90-minute work is firmly in the monumental French style so influential at that time. Richly orchestrated (particularly thrilling, glittering brass in the Libera me), the work opens with a Requiem aeternam introduced by a funeral march and builds to an intense, 50-minute Dies irae which is fiery, catalclysmic and resigned by turns. Mayr's importance as a composer and his ability to write memorable music is confirmed even more by this magnificent requiem.
