Carl Rütti's choral music is "sensuous and exuberant by turns, combining dazzling rhythms and soaring melodies with distinctively lush harmonies" Choir & Organ magazine

Of his Requiem, immense in scale yet often intimate in tone, the composer writes that 'no words are strong enough to express the feelings of the bereaved, nor sufficient to explain what will await us after death. Music may be the most appropriate language'.

Scored for soprano, baritone, double choir, strings, harp and organ, Rütti's Requiem ultimately affirms life's precious fragility.

"…Rütti's voice is unquestionably distinctive. The Bach Choir has clearly taken this Requiem to its collective heart… and performs it with involving fervency under the experienced direction of the excellent David Hill." - BBC Music Magazine

"…Carl Rütti… has a gift for finding a memorable "hook" to trigger a section - and, in this case, the entire work, which begins with a haunting soprano solo, beautifully sung by Olivia Robinson… The Bach Choir under David Hill respond… with warmth and passion, and soloists Olivia Robinson and Edward Price are outstanding..." - Gramophone

"This release is an event in the choral world… The Bach Choir sings magnificently" - The Observer
